Upcoming Events
Oct 13
YEN , Presented by New Ghosts Theatre Company in association with KXT bAKEHOUSE Theatre Company
Start Date/Time: Saturday, 13 October 2018 7:30 PM
End Date/Time: Saturday, 13 October 2018 10:00 PM
Location: Kings Cross Theatre
Address: Level 2, Kings Cross Hotel, 244-248 William St Kings Cross 2011

YEN explores a childhood lived without boundaries and the consequences of being forced to grow up on your own. The work comes at a pertinent time in the Australian political landscape. Within the last 12 months, the discourse surrounding women’s safety, the ramifications of sexual assault, the role of men, and the importance of teaching boys to respect women from a young age has become more prevalent. 

In an effort to continue the conversation and bring these issues to the fore, New Ghosts is offering school performances throughout the season and a matinee performance for the general public, followed by a panel discussion with Associate Professor Rita Shackel of the University of Sydney; a graduate of law, psychology, science, and education. Joined by the cast and creatives of the production, the panel will discuss the themes, character interactions, and its importance in today’s context. Proceeds of the school and matinee performances will go to Blue Knot Foundation.

Playing at Kings Cross Theatre from 27th September - 13th October 2018 and presented by New Ghosts Theatre Company, don't miss the Australian premiere of Anna Jordan's ground-breaking YEN.

Tickets range from $20 – $35 and can be booked online here.
