Aftershocks is the story of the 1989 Newcastle earthquake—which took 14 people’s lives—as told by the staff, members and friends of the Newcastle Worker’ Club, which bore the full force of the quake.

It is Australia’s most celebrated example of verbatim theatre, having been the subject of many productions, an SBS documentary, and a feature film.

These are extraordinary tales of the things people find within themselves in calamitous circumstances, and the ‘aftershocks’ – the way such discoveries change lives.
