Which Way Home 2016 single work drama

'Look at those trees. They’re Brigalow trees. We use the leaves for smoking. In winter when the dew settles in, it makes the trees sparkle white, like diamonds in the desert.'

'Tash and her Dad are going on a road trip. Home to country, where the sky is higher and the world goes on forever.'

'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.'

'Which Way Home' draws on writer Katie Beckett’s personal memories of growing up with her single Aboriginal father. (Source: Ilbijerri Theatre Company website)
