While there was a positive reaction to the City of Sydney’s alternative take on the government’s “preferred option” for the redevelopment of the Waterloo Estate, the plight of vulnerable residents remains unchanged.

While the play is darkly pessimistic, under Judy Davis’s direction Strindberg’s dismemberment of a marriage relationship is ferociously entertaining.

Lore is both sensational and profound, powerfully exploring the concept of the title, a body of traditions and knowledge held by a group and passed on from generation to generation.

It was a pleasant surprise as I waited outside The Factory for my meeting with Kylie Coolwell to see three familiar dogs rounding the corner and hear the familiar cry “Agro” before Kylie came into view. A well-known figure in Waterloo, Kylie Coolwell is the writer of Battle of Waterloo, which was an attraction at Wharf 1 Theatre from June 1-27. She is also the owner of Agro, Princess and Snoop.

The 13 plays, written by nine playwrights featuring 26 actors working with 12 directors, have been carefully crafted into an artistic whole beginning with despair and ending in hopefulness.
