The Deep North is a celebration of the African diaspora in South Australia. In an immersive gallery environment four characters play out their stories, using a hybrid mix of theatre, film and music.
Presented by: South Australian Playwrights Theatre Inc. (SAPT) is committed to developing and producing the theatrical works of SA writers, both established and new, engaging with our state’s diverse communities and supporting a range of voices on stage. Since 2017, SAPT have produced three original plays, in addition to two seasons of staged readings. In 2020 and with support from the James and Diana Ramsay Foundation COVID-19 Quick Response Grant, SAPT turned its attention to the creation of audio serials. They were also asked by Playwriting Australia as one of 25 national theatre companies to partake in ‘Dear Australia’, as 50 playwrights were commissioned to write postcards to the country exploring where our nation is and where it might go. Three further plays are in development for 2021 and beyond.
