We’re very excited to be presenting the National Theatre of Parramatta's production of Stolen as part of our 2018 program. The matinee performance is attracting huge interest, with a lot of secondary schools travelling from outside of our LGA, including as far afield as Port Macquarie. We anticipate that the theatre will be at full capacity come June 12th for the matinee!
Stolen is a must see for all Australians. On the 20th anniversary of its premiere season, this timely revival of Jane Harrison’s landmark play is as powerful today as it was for its very first audience. Stolen interweaves the stories of five children taken from their families – Ruby, Jimmy, Shirley, Sandy and Ann. Their stories are from different times and different places, but the five characters interact with each other as if their experiences were shared. Theirs are the stories of many.
Wiradjuri director Vicki Van Hout’s critically acclaimed production is vibrant and inventive, with endearing characters and plenty of humour. Stolen is ultimately about love and loss, resilience and hope. This is a play that will resonate long after you return home.If you would like to make a booking please contact Ainslie by phone on 4993 4266 or via email at Ainslie.Rommell@cessnock.nsw.gov.au.
