Episode 1 of Sonic Tales Season 6 presents one of our favourite brand new productions, Spirit by AWGIE award winning writer Donna Abela.
The play takes place in a processing centre on Christmas Island. It is here that bureaucratic and officious Vera faces off with severely persistent and positive Albert in the interview that could grant or reject his claim for asylum. Alice Livingstone and Craig Meneaud rise and fall in a performance that is both tense and tender, and despite being written for the stage back in 2007, the themes of Spirit couldn’t be more relevant for the audience of now.
