Event Details

Acclaimed writer Nigel Featherstone and composer James Humberstone, have collaborated to produce this gritty song-filled chronicle giving voice to the personal impact of modern warfare and the costs that are borne by families. Having completed his latest tour of Afghanistan, an Australian soldier is on leave and taking the opportunity to return to his family’s farm in regional New South Wales – he is looking forward to resting. However, as he makes his way home he is confronted by news that is both life-affirming and devastating, which pushes him to reveal a dark secret that clings like a ghost. Ultimately he must question everything he knows. What sort of man is he? What does it mean to be brave? And what future might be waiting for his family?

The Weight Of Light will also be performed at the Goulburn Regional Conservatorium, Saturday 10th March, 7:30pm.
