This play, inspired by an SBS miniseries, features six generations of Aboriginal women
In 1981, a groundbreaking miniseries called Women of the Sun aired on SBS, telling the story of four Aboriginal women living in Australia between the 1820s and 1980s. Andrea James’ new play was inspired by the series and acts as a kind of fifth chapter, adding another generation to the fold. In her play, six Aboriginal women separated by time gather on the banks of a river and reflect on their lives. Belvoir's former literary manager Anthea Williams will return to the company to direct a cast including Roxanne McDonald, Angeline Penrith, Tasma Walton and Dubs Yunupingu.
