Palliative Care Week Performance
26 May, 2017
This evening is an opportunity to share true stories of end of life and grief and loss. It’s a community event where we acknowledge death as a part of life.
Wollongong Playback Theatre uses simple yet potent forms of expression to honour and reflect on the stories shared by the audience - the results might be profoundly moving or full of light and laughter - it all depends on the stories told!
Not everyone has to tell a story, but every story is welcome on the Playback stage. Supper will be provided.

Events I Produce on behalf of Merrigong Theatre Company
