Queen's City

Queen's City

Gonna steal ya hearts, like ya stole our land.

World Premiere

Every city is nestled on top of a watering hole, bursting with truths that have been hidden and controlled. Queen’s City is no different to any other bustling urban spot in so-called Australia. Except in the heart of this city lies All Ways — a karaoke bar and skating rink run by local matriarch, Truth, and her trusty attendants: Justice, Magick and Grace.

When politicians threaten to tear down All Ways to make way for new ‘cultural’ attractions, the crew from the ‘wrong’ side of Restriction Avenue have to find a way to rewrite the past to save their beloved place.

Set in the nostalgic Eighties, Queen's City is the debut work from Blak Social with an explosive story, plenty of laughs and a rocking original soundtrack.

Written and Directed by Alethea Beetson
