North Melbourne Town Hall

“This is personal and emotional – this is truth in theatre, there is no fourth wall, no stepping back, and no veil of detachment. This is theatre as personal, as real, as cultural, as family, as community as you will ever see” –  – Michelle Evans, Head of the Wilin Centre for Indigenous Arts, VCA

“I’m eleven years old. I’m in a Police car holding my baby brother on my lap. I won’t let him go.”

The twelve children of Nugget and Mary Edwards are all part of the Stolen Generations – the kidnapped children. SONGLINES OF A MUTTI MUTTI MAN is their family songline, which tells of deep bravery, grief and love in the midst of great injustice.

Spend a night around the kitchen table with Kutcha Edwards and his family as they share their remarkable story through songs, laughter and tears.


Devised by The Edwards Family Collective
