Hungry Mile
a rehearsed reading of a new play by Daniel Keene

STC presents a free script-in-hand performance of a new short play, The Hungry Mile by Daniel Keene (STC’s The Long Way Home), featuring Anita Hegh and Ben Wood, directed by Artistic Director Kip Williams. The short play is about the struggles faced by casual docks workers during the Great Depression, as they sought work along the area known as the Hungry Mile. This stretch of docklands included the district now known as Barangaroo.

The Spirit of Barangaroo
a short film

Premiering at The Barangaroo Street Fair is a new short documentary film produced by STC called The Spirit of Barangaroo. As a strong Indigenous leader, Barangaroo continued to maintain her way of life with her people in the face of British settlement. Her spirit and values continue to inspire contemporary Indigenous women today and this documentary comprises interviews with Ann Weldon, Aunty Beryl Van Oploo, Aunty Millie Ingram, Marcia Ella-Duncan OAM, Hon Linda Burney MP, Dr Heidi Norman and Dr Jakelin Troy. Directed and written by Nancia Guiverra and photography by James Marshall.
