The cast will feature former Black Border Theatre members and local Aboriginal community members.
More than twenty years after its premiere, Jane Harrison’s STOLEN continues to speak for generations of Aboriginal people.
STOLEN tells of five young Aboriginal children forcibly removed from their parents, brought up in a repressive children’s home and trained for domestic service and other menial jobs. Segregated from society from their earliest years, not all of them successfully manage their lives when released into the outside world.
The pain, poignancy and sheer desperation of their lives is seen through the children’s own eyes as they struggle to make sense of a world where they have been told to forget their families, their homes and their language. This tender and moving story, awash with childlike humour, brings the tragic history of the Stolen Generations to the Australian stage.
