Africa (2011 - Tour)
27 April 2011 – 30 April 2011 Arts House Meat Market
Malthouse Theatre, My Darling Patricia, Marguerite Pepper Productions,
Devised Theatre Tour Collaboration
Africa is inspired by the true story of three children from Hannover, Germany who tried to elope to Africa ,on their own and in the middle of the European winter. In My Darling Patricia's production, this whimsical story of the unfettered imagination of young children is placed within a suburban Australian context of child neglect.
Where we see poverty and filth the children find giraffes, flamingos and leopards, and as the two worlds ultimately meet we are reminded of the heartbreaking resilience of a child's optimism.
This production also toured to Western Australia, South Australia, Queensland, Tasmania, and NSW.
