Making its West Australian debut, this classic Indigenous theatre piece incorporates Aboriginal culture and diverse sexuality in a singular, incomparable way. Originally performed as a one-woman piece by Eva Johnson, this production features three captivating actresses delivering powerful, timeless stories.

Three wildly different but inextricably linked women, a mother and her two daughters, reveal how they came to find each other, their culture and themselves. Connie, a rambunctious and matriarchal elder has lived through the toughest periods of Australian Aboriginal history. Regina, a nuclear mother adopted into a white household and raised as “Eurasian”, must confront the reality of her minority ethnicity. Alison, a lesbian activist, struggles with her partner’s perceptions of her heritage and how her culture affects her sexuality.

A universal story about not growing up in your culture and how sexuality affects the way one’s heritage is viewed.
