Family secrets are revealed in the spellbinding theatre show Stardust + The Mission – featuring two powerful, yet forgotten Australian stories that uncover the past to reveal who we are today.
Starring multi-award winning ABC Classic presenter and performer Joel Carnegie and acclaimed Gunditjmara actor Tom Molyneux, experience the premiere season of this nationally touring double bill at Chapel Off Chapel.
Stardust tells the story of bandleader and trumpet player Col Brain. Before he died, Col placed his most prized life possessions into a cupboard and locked it up, never to be opened again. But what was inside?
Told by his grandson, award winning ABC Classic presenter & performer, Joel Carnegie, Stardust is a heart-warming musical quest to uncover what Col wanted us to know about his life by the things he left behind.
The Mission follows “Fighting Gunditjmara” man Allan McDonald off to war. As one of the first Aboriginal soldiers from Victoria to enlist, Allan fought at Gallipoli and Beersheba, only to be denied a soldier’s settlement upon return and forced from his traditional land.
Told by his great, great nephew, acclaimed Gunditjmara actor Tom Molyneux, The Mission tells the truth of Uncle Allan’s struggle; fighting for Country, for love, and for justice.
