Monkey Baa Theatre Company’s award-winning production, The Unknown Soldier will tour North America in late 2017.
Following three seasons at Monkey Baa’s home at the Lendlease Darling Quarter Theatre, this very special Australian story about the effects of war will visit six states in America over October and November.
Charlie’s dad has just returned from war-torn Afghanistan with PTSD. When Charlie is sent to stay with his Aunt Angela, the unlikely allies embark on a life-changing journey in this deeply moving play about war, duty, courage, sacrifice and love.
Moving seamlessly between modern-day Australia and Fromelles on The Western Front in 1916, this beautiful work by Monkey Baa Creative Director, Sandra Eldridge has been described by the critics as ‘powerful,’ ‘beautifully executed’ and ‘moving.’
This tour has been made possible by the Australia Council for the Arts.
