Stolen – 2018

Stolen
Written by Jane Harrison, directed by Vicki Van Hout

Five young Aboriginal children are forcibly removed from their parents, brought up in a repressive children’s home and trained for domestic service.  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 eyes. They struggle to make sense of a world in which they have been told to forget their families, homes and language. This tender and moving story, awash with childlike humour, brings the tragic history of the Stolen Generations to the Australian stage.

Immerse yourself in a story about the importance of family, understanding and issues that have impacted strongly on Aboriginal families.
