A shift in heart
Woodbin Theatre presents The Shifting Heart at the Lilian Stott Centre in Geelong. The story is set at 4pm on Christmas Eve sometime in the 1950s in the Collingwood backyard of the Bianchi family home. We see the interaction between neighbours in a Melbourne suburb that has become home to low-income Aussie families and immigrants from war-weary Europe. The play illustrates some attitudes towards immigrants in the past, and how some of those attitudes still exist today.
Show dates vary from April 15-30. Visit gpac.org.au for tickets.
Yasin at Aireys Pub
Indie/roots and folk artist Yasin Leflef will deliver his heartfelt lyrics combined with folky guitar melodies and his unique voice at Aireys Pub. Yasin has been busking the streets of Melbourne in between shows, honing in on his material and with a steadily growing following, more and more people are starting to jump on board with Yasin’s journey. He is set to record and release his debut EP later in 2016.
Doors at 8.30pm. Entry is free.
