Lit Live: Nature and Nurture

Presented by UWA Cultural Precinct

Actor, arts writer and producer Sarah McNeill presents an evening of literature read live on stage by professional actors.

Remember what it was like to listen to a great story? Lying in bed, sitting around a camp fire, or curled up on a sofa while someone read stories that ignited the imagination? Spend a relaxing evening with some great storytellers as they bring to life some of the best short stories from Australian and international writers.

Lit Live is a new way to enjoy great literature, read by actors who can bring stories vividly to life. Fresh from the Centre for Stories where Lit Live runs every month, Sarah introduces funny, moving, uplifting and sad short stories in a cosy and intimate setting.
