Synopsis

“I was always like, like a magnet with my Dad, like everywhere he went I was right next to him. Tucked under his arm, or if I knew he was going I’d hide in the back of the car and wait for him to drive off and then pop up, when he was halfway there or something. He never got rid of me…”

Throughout Australia’s history, an unknown number of Indigenous children have been forcibly removed from their families. Parents driven mad, grandparents heartbroken, siblings torn apart, language lost, and culture stripped away.

Using testimonials from the Stolen Generations, Noongar man Ian Michael invites you to listen in on the silenced stories of his country.

"A brave and quietly devastating performance… Moving theatre that handles some emotionally harrowing material with dignity and grace.”
— Cameron Woodhead, The Age
