Riverside’s National Theatre of Parramatta presents
STOLEN
By Jane Harrison

Return Season

“Van Hout’s production is expansive, earthy, and generous.– Time Out

Directed by Vicki Van Hout, a fresh interpretation of this tender and moving classic revisits Jane Harrison’s important historical text about five individuals from The Stolen Generations in the context of Australia today.

Featuring themes of loss and love together with the poignancy of the characters struggling to make sense of their world, Stolen will resonate with you for a long time.

Please Note: This production contains coarse language, loud noises and adult themes.

FROM THE PROGRAM COORDINATOR

This hugely successful and thought-provoking production of Stolen is back at its home in Parramatta before heading off on a regional tour. Vicki Van Hout is a director that isn’t afraid to push the envelope and her production is a breath of fresh air. This adaptation deals with The Stolen Generations in a real and human way and is perfect for students in Aboriginal Studies and other humanities courses as a study on the human impact of this dark part of Australia’s history, as well as for HSC Drama students.
