Description This new Australian theatre work is performed, written and devised by the PYT Ensemble in collaboration with acclaimed theatre makers David Williams and Kate Worsley. Using Shakespeare’s classic tale as a starting point, the project investigates ideas of love and family amongst the historic divisions in Fairfield, the most culturally diverse region in Australia. The local communities can often appear to be living in harmony, but scratch the surface and the long-term cultural divisions become apparent. These conflicts are often related to the experiences of parents and grandparents who migrated here from war torn countries. Although the young people in Fairfield weren’t directly exposed to these international conflicts, their lives continue to be shaped by them.
