    The Cake Man - Play reading at the 181 Regent Street Symposium

    In 1972 the National Black Theatre emerged from Regent Street, Redfern with an explosion of plays, dance, activist poetry, biting satire and street theatre, giving new voice to the struggles of the 1970s and the Redfern Aboriginal community. During its five years of operation, this astonishing cultural renaissance spawned landmark playwrights such as Kevin Gilbert, Robert Merritt and Jack Davis, as well as the careers of remarkable actors such as Bob Maza, Lillian Crombie and Justine Saunders, cultural activist Gary Foley and director Brian Syron.
