Bold revival of Drama at Flinders University

The revitalisation of Flinders University’s Drama program is being marked by two significant public events within the next month – a new Australian production by graduating drama students under renowned Theatre director Wayne Harrison AM, and a landmark public lecture addressing radical change sweeping through Australia’s performing arts sector.

The performance of Coming of Age in Australia, a new work comprising an innovative anthology of coming-of-age experiences from key Australian plays, is being performed in the Matthew Flinders Theatre at Flinders University’s Bedford Park campus from July 25-29.

This showcase for Flinders’ graduating Drama students is the result of inviting Wayne Harrison to be the University’s current Teaching Artist in Residence. Described as one of the nation’s greatest practitioner-experts on the history of Australian playwrighting, Mr Harrison is also a former Artistic Director of the Sydney Theatre Company, Creative Director of Spiegelworld Las Vegas, Sydney New Year’s Eve and the Melbourne Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony.
