“Which Way Home feels as safe and generous as a tight hug from a loved one.”★★★★ – Time Out Sydney
“Perfectly pitched between humour and pathos”★★★★ - The Age
The Seymour Centre is thrilled to present the critically acclaimed, smash-hit darling of the 2017 Sydney Festival, Which Way Home, in the Reginald Theatre this July as part of the show's national tour and The Seymour Centre's 2018 season.
Tash and her Dad are going on a trip. 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. Home to country, where the sky is higher and the world goes on forever. Which Way Home is a road-trip comedy 80,000 years in the making.
Infused with humour and heart Which Way Home draws on writer Katie Beckett’s own memories of growing up with her single Aboriginal father. “I have had a lot of wonderfully strong and emotionally in tune, generous men around me growing up and I was wondering why don’t I see [them] represented on stage, on TV, on film? “said Katie Beckett, who wrote Which Way Home for her father and to celebrate the good, strong Aboriginal men of our nation.
ILBIJERRI is one of Australia’s leading theatre companies creating innovative works by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists telling stories about what it means to be Indigenous in Australia today.
