Works update from Sydney Light Rail

UPDATE: Major light rail construction will extend from Circular Quay to Chinatown from tonight, enabling Sydneysiders to picture the future of George Street with vehicles permanently removed from outside Town Hall.
The beginning of construction on George Street between Park and Bathurst streets (zone 7) and from Bathurst to Liverpool streets (zone 8) will mean George Street is closed from Circular Quay to Liverpool Street.

Sydney Theatre Company presents The Hanging

Sydney Theatre Company presents The Hanging by Angela Between.

The Hanging by STC’s 2014 Patrick White Fellow, Angela Betzien, receives its world premiere at Sydney Theatre Company (STC) from 28 July to 10 September 2016. STC Resident Director Sarah Goodes and Resident Designer Elizabeth Gadsby are at the helm following their recent success with STC’s Disgraced by Ayad Akhtar. 
The Hanging explores the Australian gothic motif of lost children and loss of innocence in a vast, uncompromising landscape. Three teenage girls have disappeared. When one of them, Iris (Cummings), is found and the police investigation led by Detective David Flint (Carroll) intensifies, she has no recall of what has occurred. Her teacher, Ms Corrossi, (Lemon) is enlisted to get to the core of the girl’s confusion and anxiety, in a cat and mouse game where everyone has something to lose.

Where: Wharf 1 Theatre, The Wharf, Pier 4/5 Hickson Road, Walsh Bay
Date: 28 July – 10 September.
Opening Night: Tuesday 2 August at 8.00pm
