Theatre – Asylum

The Coalition government took Operation Sovereign Borders – a military-led response to “combat people smuggling and protect Australia’s borders” – to the September 2013 federal election. Apocalypse Theatre initiated an immediate response by inviting playwrights across the country to create plays examining this widely debated policy and the selected plays matched to directors and actors. For 12 nights 24 new Australian works, largely presented as staged readings, consider what it means to seek asylum.
