Stardust & The Mission

July 20 @ 7:30 pm

$30/15 (conc.)

Presented by The Space Company

Written by Joel Carnegie and Tom Molyneux

Directed by Tom Molyneux and James Jackson

Two stories about love, music and war and all the things that people leave behind.

Drama

For 25 years, a locked cupboard sat in a family garage. So what was inside?

A ‘Fighting Gunditjmara’ man returns home from war only to be forced from his traditional

lands. What drove him to fight for a country that didn’t even recognise him? The Space Company presents a double bill of documentary theatre: ‘Stardust’ and ‘The Mission’, starring multi-award winning ABC presenter and performer, Joel Carnegie, and award winning actor, Tom Molyneux.

Two stories about love, music and war, and all the things that people leave behind…

With members of the Portland Citizens Brass Band also performing across both shows, ‘Stardust’ and ‘The Mission’ will reveal the extraordinary stories of two ordinary Australians whose legacies still reverberate today – in a double bill that brings to life both lingering memories and lessons from the past.
