Gallipoli: A Story Untold

AAR-Gallipoli-A-Story-UntoldExploring a unique chapter in ANZAC history, ASU Productions presents Gallipoli: A Story Untold at the Kensington Town Hall on 26 & 28 April 2024.

Egypt: 24 April 1915. The world is ablaze with conflict, and the distant shores of Gallipoli beckon. Amidst the chaos of war, an ANZAC correspondent from the sunburnt plains of Australia has been posted to the arid sands of Egypt.

His mission, to report on the valiant efforts of our troops as they prepare for battle. But this is no ordinary assignment. As the correspondent steps onto foreign soil, he meets someone who challenges him with questions that cut to the core of loyalty and identity.

Who truly stands by our side in this fight? Are alliances forged in blood or politics? And as the sun sets over the pyramids on the day before the landing, will his views remain steadfast, or will they shift like shifting sands?

Written and directed by award-winning Australian-Egyptian playwright Mohammed Hashem, this powerful performance is followed by a panel discussion with historians and the cast, offering a deeper understanding of this unique chapter in ANZAC history.

Unravel the untold story of courage, camaraderie, and conflict – a tale that transcends borders and echoes through time.
