Counting and Cracking

Concert or Performance

11 Jan 2019 to 2 Feb 2019

Radha and her son Siddhartha are finally ready to embrace their lives in Sydney’s western suburbs, when a phone call from Colombo brings the past spinning back to life. Sixteen actors play four generations of a family, in a story about Australia as a land of refuge; Sri Lanka’s efforts to remain united; and reconciliation within families, across countries, across generations.

Written by S. Shakthidharan, this powerful new Australian play is staged in Sydney Town Hall and served with a Sri Lankan meal.

It’s a timely illustration of the ways in which Australia transforms those who come here and is itself transformed, that ultimately reveals not how much separates, but what people all have in common.
