ILBIJERRI Theatre Company presents SCAR TREES

Adapted from the original script by Declan Furber-Gillick

 

Kirra-Lee and Bryce are at the servo. The jerry can is half-full. One phone’s flat and the other one’s out of credit.

Garren’s on his BMX. The shit one. He knows all about what it can do, and its limits. He knows the tracks he doesn’t want to go down. Fightin an that. He knows there’s other ways. There’s gotta be other ways.

Uncle Laurie does his wood carving and runs a men’s group. He’s been off the grog for a while now.

They’re all trying to get to Uncle Pat’s funeral. But when they get there, what stories will be told, and what will be left unspoken?


Warnings:

  • Suitable for years 13+
  • Family violence references
  • Drug references
