The fascinating story of how a deredlict wing of Darlinghurst Gaol became the Cell Block Theatre.
Set in Stone is the fascinating story of how a deredlict wing of Darlinghurst Gaol became the Cell Block Theatre, the hub of Australia’s avant-garde music, theatre and dance scene in the 1960s and 70s. Once home to Sydney’s most notorious female criminals, this extraordinary venue became a place of creative freedom and ingenuty, and saw early performances from artists such as John Bell, Yvonne Kenny, Peter Sculthorpe, David Malouf, Jim Sharman and Nick Cave. Richly illustrated with striking archival photographs, Set in Stone is the first book to explore this iconic cultural site and the ground-breaking works that emerged from its rough sandstone walls.
