Alfred Deakin is Afraid of the Dark
Written and Directed by Carla Moore
Australia’s most surprising Prime Minister Alfred Deakin who stood comfortable in the same social democratic tradition as the Australian Labour Party, yet was also the Father of the modern Liberal Party. Deakin was a man surrounded by women who adored him; a man who believe in Ouija boards and mediums, yet ironically was afraid of the dark, a man who wrote poetry to his wife, yet was the architect of the White Australia Policy. Come see this original and lively interpretation of the life of Australia’s 2nd, 5th and 7th Prime Minister – get your tickets quickly before the PM changes again!
