Theo Barker Memorial Lecture

Fri 18 August 2017, at 6:00 pm

Rachael Coopes “The Ghosts of the Past are Very Present in Bathurst”.

With a deep passion for research-heavy projects, a desire to create theatre for young people, and a fascination with how Australia’s past informs its present, Rachael Coopes delves into the complex process of merging history with imagination. She discusses the challenges and joys of using “true” (as true as they ever are) historical stories to inspire writing for theatre – after all, history is just “his” story. And how to discover that tiny piece of gold in mountains of research that allows a story develop that entertains, engages and starts a dialogue with young people.
