East West Street: A Song of Good and Evil  is not to be missed.

On our podcast channel, writer Russ Rymer discusses an environmental crisis besetting classical music, and Natalie Haynes uses her unique combination of ancient history and stand-up comedy to reveal how the search for the meaning of life has stood the test of time. 

The Wonderful World of Walliams

Friday 8 & Saturday 9 December 

International bestselling children’s author David Walliams is coming to Riverside Theatres in Parramatta, and City Recital Hall this December with his brilliant new book, Bad Dad.
It’s been ten years since David Walliams’ debut The Boy in the Dress took the children’s book world by storm. Since then, the bestselling author, comedian and actor – dubbed ‘Roald Dahl of the 21st Century’– has won legions of adoring young fans around the world, sold more than 20 million books and had his stories translated into 53 languages. The author of the much-loved children's classics Ratburger, Awful Auntie, Billionaire Boy, Demon Dentist, Gangsta Granny and The World’s Worst Children has truly become a global phenomenon.

Walliams' next classic-in-the-making, Bad Dad, is a fast and furious, heart-warming story that will have readers on the edge of their seats, roaring with laughter and holding back the tears.
