Shareena Clanton’s The Age of Ignorance is Over

Read by Shareena Clanton

Shareena Clanton reads her own essay, ‘The Age of Ignorance is Over’, originally published in the Media Entertainment & Arts Alliance Equity Magazine in Autumn 2018.

Shareena Clanton is an Australian theatre, film and television actor.

Clanton portrays Doreen Anderson in the Foxtel TV series Wentworth and appeared in the feature film Last Cab to Darwin. In 2017, she starred in Melbourne Theatre Company's production of Macbeth.

In Autumn 2018, Clanton published her essay ‘The Age of Ignorance is Over’ in Media Entertainment & Arts Alliance Equity Magazine. It issues a wake-up call to those in positions of authority to lift the cloak of invisibility from artists of colour and afford them the same opportunities as their white cohort.

For Great Australian Speeches, 'The Age of Ignorance is Over'
 is read by the author herself, Shareena Clanton.

While we're offstage, we begin this new initiative by experimenting with non-fiction texts and poetry in Great Australian Speeches, recreating chilling ghost stories in a dramatic reading of The Turn of the Screw by Henry James, and will be exploring audio plays when we can return to the studio.
