WHICH WAY HOME
A road trip comedy 80,000 years in the making
Tash and her Dad are going on a road trip. Home to country, where the sky is higher and the world goes on forever.
It’s a long way from the wide streets and big old houses of Tash’s childhood. Two Black faces in a very white suburb. Dad still thinks he’s the king of cool, but he’s an old fella now. It’s time for Tash to take him home.
ILBIJERRI Theatre Company tells stories about what it means to be Indigenous in Australia today. Infused with humour and heart WHICH WAY HOME draws on writer Katie Beckett’s own memories of growing up with her single Aboriginal father.
