Diamond mine on Sacred Ground

Due to COVID-19 this production has been postponed. We hope to bring it to our stages at a later date. Please view our online brochure here.


First Nations heritage, a family curse and ghosts at the dinner table. David’s been keeping a safe distance but now work is calling him home. To make things worse, he’s approving a new diamond mine, on his own Sacred Ground. It’s a secret he must keep from his family as he arrives home on the anniversary of his Dad’s death.

Kangaroo Stew is an Australian drama of the modern life of an Aboriginal family. There will be love, punch-ups, Creedence Clearwater Revival (Uncle Foggerty!) and of course, the spirits of ancestors past.

Written by Wonguktha/Yamatji/Murri writer Zac James (Ice Land: A Hip H’Opera), this mob welcome you inside their home to witness grief and Native Title from a seat at the dinner table.
