/ Mad Wednesdays / Arts / The Rise and Fall of Saint George hits Melbourne for Midsumma


Playwright Lachlan Philpott joined Robbie and Dean on MAD Wednesday to talk about The Rise and Fall of Saint George, an inspiring tale of strength and community coming to Arts Centre Melbourne this Midsumma Festival.

The work was inspired by the vandalism of a popular and much-loved iconic mural of the singer  George Michael  in Sydney’s Inner West following the successful Marriage Equality campaign in 2018.

The events following the desecration of the Erskineville mural symbolised the challenges that some in the LGBTQIA+ community were facing and the solidarity they found. 

The Rise and Fall of Saint George is being performed for two nights only, 23-24th January – click here for more details.
