Yellow Yellow Sometimes Blue
Western Sydney, 1950s. Gerard and Margo Lewers are hosting lavish parties for artists and the cultural elite in what will soon be the burgeoning Modernist Art Movement in Australia.
But how was it for the outsiders who worked for the Lewers who also had their own ambitions? New play Yellow Yellow Sometimes Blue explores what it’s like looking from the outside and surviving.
Sophie spoke to director Nick Atkins about cultural shifts and how Western Sydney has always been a thriving hub of ideas and art.
