Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company says
“Some chains are meant to be broken.”

What would happen if The Three Wise Men arrived drunk, lost, handcuffed and as strangers to each other? Scripted and collaborated by the performers Peter Docker, Emmanuel James Brown, Ian Wilkes with Director Kyle J Morrison, So Long Suckers is a first time cross-cultural, cross art form collaboration between Yirra Yaakin & Bunuba Cultural Enterprises (Jandamarra).

The Three Wise Men try to remember who they are but each time they remember it is a grog-police-jail memory. They are prisoners haunted by memories of freedom fighters – Yagan, Ned Kelly & Jandamarra. They each chase down their identities and their purpose, all the while sorting through their memories of oppression and of fighting back. As they go through this process they become closer to themselves, to this reality. What is their wisdom? Will they get to the birth on time? Will their gifts be appropriate?

A world premiere, So Long Suckers promises to be provocative and powerful, exploring the destructive effects of alcohol on our communities.
