Stolen generation production at the Phee

Hart

Head to the Phee Broadway Theatre to see the award winning production Hart, telling stories of the stolen generation.

Wednesday 7 June 2017

A moving multi award winning theatre production sharing stories of the stolen generation is coming to the Phee Broadway Theatre this month.

The production, Hart, weaves together the testimonials of four Western Australian Noongar men spanning three generations.

Noongar man, writer and performer Ian Michael said the play has been a process of healing for himself and for audiences.

“The show acknowledges the injustices of the past and current injustices that we as Aboriginal people face. However, it also brings a sense of hope for future generations,” he said.

Hart has toured throughout Australia and New Zealand, to great acclaim.

The Age said, “A brave and quietly devastating performance… Moving theatre that handles some emotionally harrowing material with dignity and grace.”

Arts Hub said, “In simple prose, it tracks the doleful story of dispossession…. [but] the play itself is warm, big-hearted and often very funny.”

With Reconciliation Week commemorated earlier this month, be sure to come along and hear the important silenced stories of our nation’s history.
