City of Sydney‘s Late Night Library presents yet another treat for History Week, this time a feast of comedy and melodrama taking you back to the hey-day of radio drama of the 1930s and 40s.

Weaving contemporary humour with local history, Merran Winchester and her team of actors and broadcasters will transport the audience back in time, using live sound effects, old news transcripts, music and more. Learn a little about Sydney history, and make a little Sydney history while you’re at it.

More than one Sydney library has links to a wireless history. Kings Cross Library has its own wireless history, sitting on the site of the old ABC building, making it the perfect location for this trip back in time.
