Anthem

Concert or Performance

15 Jan 2020 to 19 Jan 2020

Twenty-one years ago, four playwrights and a composer came together to create Who’s Afraid of the Working Class? a powerful, critically-acclaimed portrait of Australia in the Howard era.

Now, six prime ministers later, writers Andrew Bovell, Patricia Cornelius, Melissa Reeves, Christos Tsiolkas and Irine Vela reunite to take the national pulse and ask if the advance of Australia is truly fair.

Created with director Susie Dee and an extraordinary ensemble of performers, Anthem is a funny, unflinching and astute portrait of a country unwilling to reconcile its past and uncertain of its future and political vision.

Who’s Afraid of the Working Class? amplified the voices of ordinary people so we all could hear them. Now, Anthem turns up the volume on the everyday injustices people choose to ignore; colliding voices that may not always be in harmony but cannot be silenced.

By Andrew Bovell, Patricia Cornelius, Melissa Reeves, Christos Tsiolkas and Irine Vela.

Directed by Susie Dee. Produced by Performing Lines in association with Arts Centre Melbourne.
