Description

For our first Late Night Library series in 2017, we’re teaming up with Sydney-based storytellers Little Fictions. Over 6 nights, prepared to be entertained by a talented team of actors, artists and musicians who’ll bring local tales to life through a mix of original multimedia and live performance.

According to Cluedo, the library is an ideal place for a crime… Colonel Mustard with a candlestick blah blah blah. We agree. Only the Little Fictions’ crime stories you’ll hear won’t be cosy whodunits. Former prison teachers turned fictionists, Mark O’Flynn and Julie Chevalier have written stories with a birds’ eye view of a restorative justice circle (‘A Lovely Outing’) and a prisoner’s first day of release (‘Meant’). Susan McCreery and Shady Cosgrove give bite-sized slices of crime in suburbia in ‘Call the Ambulance’, ‘Outlet’ and ‘Disturbance’ while Richard Holt’s ‘Bush Burial’ will send chills down your spine. We’ll play a few quick rounds of Exquisite Corpse to test our collective express-crime writing skills and then round off the evening with ‘I Hate Crime Fiction’, an old style radio play with a post-modern bent written by anti-realist Melbourne spoken word performer, Eddy Burger.

Hosted by noir aficionado, Adam Norris and performed by Eleni Schumacher, Felix Johnson, Oscar Morphew and Lauren Hamilton Neill, this will be an engrossing and entertaining hour set in the mean streets of Haymarket.

This series of Late Night Library is produced by City of Sydney and presented in collaboration with Little Fictions.

Late Night Library usually books out, so to avoid disappointment be sure to book for this event.
