Wesley Enoch AM

Playwright, Wesley Enoch AM opens up about his life behind many scripts.

Playwright Wesley Enoch learnt about the power of storytelling early in his career. Born on Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island) and great nephew of Oodgeroo Noonuccal, art and political activism are part of his family legacy. For three decades, while directing theatre and festivals all over Australia, Wesley has used stories to effect social change. In this podcast he ponders the ‘”fork in the road’’ in his own life that led him to write and direct plays that change perspectives and conventional narratives.
