Midsumma: The Rise and Fall of Saint George
The Newlands Collective is joining forces with Just Holler, shOUT, and MGLC as well as a myriad of other performers and musicians for the first Melbourne performance of The Rise and Fall of Saint George.
“To celebrate the life of our much-loved star, a beautiful mural appeared across a wall in Sydney’s Inner West. It stood for eleven months with no hint of complaint or controversy. The dark forces unleashed and forced upon our community by the Marriage Equality campaign changed that.
One day after we heard YES, a day to celebrate and heal after the divisive campaign, the mural was destroyed in a series of attacks.
Two of Australia’s leading queer artists, pop icon Paul Mac and playwright Lachlan Philpott, have teamed up to tell the story of Saint George through the eyes of our community.”
