Desert Wirla, in partnership with the Blue Room Theatre and Yirra Yaakin, invites you to the WORLD PREMIERE of Kangaroo Stew!
'You gonna sell your soul for a fist full of diamonds?'
Join us for the wild ride that is Kangaroo Stew. Protagonist David has decided to return home, on the pretext of being with his family, at the time of the anniversary of his father John's death. However, David has an ulterior motive, which is to actually approve a new mine site on his family's sacred ground! To further complicate matters, John doesn't like to stay dead during his anniversary.
Perth audiences will have the opportunity to see a powerhouse of First Nations; cast and crew, bring this poignant drama to life on stage, for a very limited season. There will be love, punch ups, Creedence Clearwater Revival (Uncle Foggerty!) and of course, the spirits of ancestors past.
