Summary
"Set in stone is the fascinating story of how a derelict 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 ingenuity, and saw early performances from artists such as John Bell, Yvonne Kenny, Peter Sculthorpe, David Malouf, Jim Sharman and Nick Cave. ... Set in stone is the first book to explore this iconic cultural site and ground-breaking works that emerged from its rough sandstone walls."--Back cover
