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.
