Coffee, Tea & 25 Cigarettes is an informal evening about Arab Australian contemporary theatre over the last 25 years.

This event has been inspired by remembering “Cafe Hakawati” – a ground breaking community theatre production, developed by Death Defying Theatre with Arab Australian communities in 1991, at the time of the so-called First Gulf War.
A night of short presentations – produced by Arab Theatre Studio in partnership with Urban Theatre Projects and Bankstown Arts Centre – gathering some of our contemporary cultural histories with the aim of having critical conversations.
