A Fortunate Life is a moving and beautiful storytelling of a fascinating Australian story, using audio visual projections and live music to evoke the exquisite beauty, isolation and harshness of the Australian bush and early Australian life.
This adaptation of A.B. Facey’s classic novel is the story of a parentless boy who started work at eight on the frontier of Western Australia, struggled as a rural worker, survived the gore of Gallipoli, lost his home in the Depression and tragedy in World War 2 – yet still felt he was fortunate!
A Fortunate Life embraces themes that are intrinsic to our history and culture as modern Australians – resilience, fortitude, hope and integrity – placing humanity centre-stage. Join us for this unique opportunity to become immersed in modern history and experience the talents of our students in a live theatre performance.
