Lost in the Woods

Venue Raffertys Theatre
Dates 13 September 2014

Grant lives in a housing estate in Villawood, surrounded by drugs, crime and boredom. His flat-mate is a loser who struggles to pay his rent. Grant wants to get away from it all but before he can, he is confronted with an unwelcome visitor.

Lost in the Woods is the result of 9 months creative engagement with men living in the Urana Street Housing estate in Villawood. The stories were collected from real life experiences and developed through performance, character and script development workshops. This film provides an insight into the real lives of people living in public housing in Western Sydney.

Screening of short film and behind the scenes. Followed by a Q&A with actors and creative team.
