Dead Men Talking coming back to Oberon in June 2019

OBERON is eagerly awaiting the return of Henry Lawson and Banjo Paterson.

Dead Men Talking is coming back to town after a sell-out performance in 2015. The 90-minute show is the brainchild of actor Max Cullen and writer, historian and musician Warren Fahey, who bring Australia's literary giants back to life through verse, banter and song.

Fahey wrote the centenary edition of Banjo Paterson's Old Bush Songs and in 2010 was awarded The Bush Laureate Lifetime Achievement Award.

Lawson and Paterson are also important to Cullen.

"My grandfather was a bit of a famous drover. His name was Narromine Ned, Edwin Cullen, and he married my grandmother, who was the local blacksmith, Enid Nolan, and my father would always recite Banjo Paterson and Henry Lawson," Cullen said.

Tickets, which include a supper of soup, damper and cake, are selling fast for Dead Men Talking on Friday, June 21 at 6.30pm at the Robert Hooper Community Hall. They are $35 from Oberon Library (cash only).

The show will again be hosted by Friends of Oberon Library.
