Black Cockatoo

An Ensemble Theatre Production

 

This is a story of strength, resistance, hope and possibility.

Over 150 years ago, 13 brave Aboriginal men in Western Victoria picked up their cricket bats and embarked on a treacherous voyage to England and into the unknown – all in the name of sport.

Inspired by the true story of legendary First Nations cricketer Johnny Mullagh and Australia’s first ever international sporting team. They should have returned to Australia as celebrated heroes. Instead they came back to find the world they once knew was no longer there.

 

Performed by: Joseph Althouse (Wunujaka) ,
Phoebe Grainer(Djungan), Mark Nannup (Yamaji/Noongar) and
Colin Smith (Jagera)

Producer: Ensemble Theatre
Writer: Geoffrey Atherden
Director: Wesley Enoch (Noonuccal Nuugi)
