State Library Supports

Theatre is made to fire debate. Join the State Theatre Company South Australia for a series of debates around the themes of each play in their 2021 Season, supported by the State Library of South Australia.

This Tangent talk is based on Eureka Day by Jonathan Spector - an hilarious and ultimately compassionate play about inoculation, disagreement and the lengths parents will go to keep their children safe. Hear from a panel of speakers from the academic and artistic realms, as they explore the themes of this topical play.

Tangent is presented by State Theatre Company South Australia and supported by State Library of South Australia.

To keep our staff and customers safe we continue to follow the physical distancing, building capacity limits and increased hygiene practises outlined by the State Government.
