Presented by Rebecca Cheers and Christopher Batkin

In the sprawling, brawling literary bohemia of 1920’s Sydney, the daughter of a well-known poet rules the cafes. In middle-class Melbourne, Australia’s first home-grown female lawyer writes about changing the world. They share the same name, and become tangled up in history long after they are gone.

Half-World is a feminist fantasy, a remix of history where the two women meet and step into each other’s worlds.

Making the Wooloongabba Substation its home — a heritage building with 20s history of its own — Half-World is a new short play debuting in Anywhere 2018. Sometimes funny, sometimes wistful, sometimes mad as hell: if you’re curious about the very different lives of historical women living at the same time, this play is for you.
