The Day the Sky Turned Black
One-man show tells the story of the 2009 Australian firestorms
This article is from 2010.
Ali Kennedy-Scott retells the story of the firestorms that claimed the lives of 173 Australians in February 2009, acting out the testimonies of five survivors. Each character is convincingly portrayed, with Kennedy-Scott changing her mannerisms to suit each one; the transitions between them, though, follow a somewhat rigid and formulaic process.
