INFORMATION FOR TEACHERS

Canberra Theatre Centre presents Alternative Fact’s production of

Quiet Faith by David Williams

FROM THE EDUCATION OFFICER:

Contemporary Christianity is far more complex than Fred Nile and Tony Abbott would like us to think. The place of Christian faith in Australian politics is often linked to conservatism and intolerance. In a gentle exploration of faith, the words of everyday Christians are woven into this verbatim theatre work, their views taken from hours of interviews.

Quiet Faith asks the audience to listen, to occasionally sing and pray. Above all it asks them to look at the face of Christianity today, and to wonder why new faith-based social movements such as Love Makes A Way, who actively campaign against government policies, go unreported.

From award-winning documentary theatre maker David Williams (Smurf in Wanderland, Grace Under Pressure, The Table of Knowledge), comes a surprising journey into the world of the quietly, progressively faithful.

Quiet Faith offers a beautiful, immersive and heartfelt portrait of the different ways that faith can underpin civic life.
