Following a sell-out premiere Melbourne season in 2016 and a four week sell out Sydney Festival run, Ilbijerri Theatre Company is set to bring heart-warming drama comedy Which Way Home to BREC on Friday 13 July at 8pm.
Which Way Home is the story of an Aboriginal girl, her much loved ageing Dad and their road trip to his birthplace. Tash and her Dad experience moments of hilarity and annoyance as the trivial become exaggerated with the four doors of a car.
Which Way Home draws on writer Katie Beckett’s personal memories of growing up with her single Aboriginal father. “The reason I wrote Which Way Home was because I love my Dad. That’s it. It’s truly that simple” says Beckett.
Beckett went onto say “It wasn’t an easy time but he did it. He is a loving, wonderful, strong man. I have had a lot of wonderfully strong and emotionally in tune, generous men around me growing up and I was wondering why don’t I see the aboriginal men that I grew up with represented on stage, on TV, on film?”
Tickets for Which Way Home are on sale now and can be purchased online at bunburyentertainment.com via phone on 1300 662 771 or in person at the Box Office.
