Crowbones and Carnivores

An important part of the values that guide the way that we work at Terra Rosa is giving back to the communities we work with. Giving back is a deed that can take many forms, and can sometimes be as simple as a show of support.

That’s why we’re taking the opportunity today to promote the production of a play by a member of one of the communities we work with. David Milroy is a celebrated playwright and member of the Palyku people.

Students from the Aboriginal Theatre program at the Western Australia Academy of Performing Arts will deliver a production of David’s latest play Crowbones and Carnivores in November. The production will be directed by Rick Brayford and in addition to writing the script David has also developed an original score for the play.

On the edge of the desert amongst a nest of sandalwood a family awaits for the arrival of a train. A sudden tragedy releases a pungent tale of love, patriarchy and smoking revenge.

Crowbones and Carnivores is running from 17 to 22 November 2012 at WAAPA’s Enright Studio, Bradford Place, Mt Lawley. Tickets are available from the Western Australia Academy of Performing Arts.
