Six Hours in Geelong is a story of loss, loathing, love, and racism. A fast and funny musical ride, through cultural complexity, into the soul of a changing city.
A true story about a group of young people, who witness an Islamophobic incident on the Melbourne to Geelong train which leads them to question their identity, friendships and sense of belonging.
Created and performed by the Geelong Edge Ensemble, a company of emerging artists from Middle Eastern, Pacifika and African backgrounds, who represent a contemporary voice for theatre in Geelong.
