“You can’t stay away from this place. It’s your home." Ben, Australian Graffiti

Join us at Sydney Theatre Company for our second Longhouse event as we step behind the scenes of Australian Graffiti ahead of its world premiere. Developed through the Lotus Playwriting Program, an initiative of CAAP and Playwriting Australia and supported by the Girgensohn Foundation,  and commissioned by Sydney Theatre Company, Australian Graffiti follows the journey of a Thai family looking for a place to belong as they take their restaurant from one country town to another.  Playwright Disapol Savetsila, director Paige Rattray, STC Literary Manager Polly Rowe, cast and creatives discuss the journey from page to stage of this remarkable new Australian work. Networking refreshments will be served at the Bar at the End of the Wharf afterwards.

Thurs 22 June

6pm - 8pm

Wharf 2, Sydney Theatre Company

Pier 4, Hickson Road, Walsh Bay


The Longhouse is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW

Contemporary Asian Australian Performance (CAAP)

Welcome to the new business name of Theatre 4a Incorporated.  Previously known as Performance 4a, our new name clearly and concisely states what we’re about. 

CAAP occupies a unique position as the only professional arts company dedicated to making exceptional contemporary Asian Australian work for all audiences.  We engender greater cultural diversity in Australian performing arts by producing cross art form theatrical works of the highest quality, in partnership with major festivals and flagship companies. Our highly acclaimed works include the Sydney Festival hits In Between Two and The Serpent’s Table (co-produced with Griffin Theatre Company), Yasukichi Murakami – Through A Distant Lens which premiered at Darwin Festival, Stories Then & Now (presented by Carriageworks) and Who Speaks For Me? (co-produced with National Theatre of Parramatta).
