In 2019, the NSW Parliament reopened the NSW Parliamentary Inquiry into Gay and Transgender hate crimes between 1970 and 2010 to delve into the state’s history of violence and persecution against LGBTQI Australians.

In this landmark production, Shane Anthony and his ensemble have taken as their starting point interviews with real Australians affected by these hate crimes. Drawing on the words of the victims’ family members, witnesses, historians, police officers, journalists and researchers, they have created a searing and unapologetic look at how cultural prejudice and bias have contributed to violence against gay and transgender people in Australia.

The director of acclaimed theatre productions Anatomy of a Suicide, Songs for the Fallen and The Whale returns to the Old Fitz Theatre with this powerful work that demands a light be shone on this dark chapter in Sydney’s history.

Our Blood Runs in the Street was developed with the assistance of Metro Arts and NIDA Open Pilot Program with creative development residencies in 2019. We acknowledge ACON for their generous support in the development of this production.

There are limited seats available to a special post show forum, co-hosted with ACON on Sunday 23 February. Please contact producer@choptlogic.com.au to register your interest in this event.
