The Flame Thrower

Shining a light on some of Australia's most pressing social issues.

Winthrop Hall, UWA

Tickets $12.50–$14


We’ve seen an edge creep into Australian society that is at odds with our supposed happy-go-lucky image – our young people drinking themselves to death, gender inequality, racism.

Elspeth Muir, author of Wasted: A Story of Alcohol, Grief and a Death in Brisbane, Clementine Ford, author of Fight Like a Girl, playwright and Black Comedy writer and actor Nakkiah Lui, and award-winning author of Here Come the Dogs, Omar Musa, shine a light on some of our most pressing issues with Geoff Hutchison.
