Tune into Late Night Library for a feast of comedy and melodrama taking you back to the hey-day of radio drama of the 1930s and 40s. Weaving contemporary humour with local history, Merran Winchester and her team will transport the audience back in time, using live sound effects, old news transcripts, music and more. Learn a little about Sydney history, and make a little Sydney history while you’re at it.
More than one Sydney library has links to a wireless history. Kings Cross Library has its own wireless history, sitting on the site of the old ABC building, making it the perfect location for this trip back in time.
For NSW History Week, join a group of local actors and community broadcasters as they explore the history of Sydney and its life on the wireless.
Late Night Library Special: Welcome to the Studio is produced by City of Sydney and presented in collaboration with Maeve Marsden.
In its seventh year, City of Sydney’s Late Night Library is kicking goals creatively and continues to provide emerging creative producers an opportunity to explore and develop new work.
In 2015 and 2016, Maeve Marsden developed work for Late Night Library that has gone on to receive 5 star reviews at Sydney Festival. She has played to packed houses at festivals round the country and internationally. Her storytelling project, Queerstories, won Best Spoken Word at Sydney Fringe and is now a monthly event at Giant Dwarf. For our 2017 Late Night Library Specials series, we’ve brought Maeve back to present four compelling performances across the year.
Bookings recommended, however you can join the walk-up queue on the evening of the performance.
Kings Cross is wheelchair accessible.
