STC Virtual

Prose and poetry

Charles Wu reading a selection of prose and poetry

Charles Wu is one of Australia's most exciting young actors, seen in recent years at STC in The Resistible Rise of Arturo UiChimerica and Mosquitoes. As we contemplate our new way of living in isolation, Charles and Resident Director Jessica Arthur have selected a few excerpts of prose and poetry — by Mary Shelley, Giovanni Boccaccio and Emily Dickinson — that offer us a sense of hope and strength and connect us, across history and adversity, to each other. In this latest episode of STC Virtual, Charles performs these passages from his own seclusion to yours.
