The 7 Stages of Grieving

Theatre that makes you feel. A new adaptation of one of Australia’s most important plays.

By Wesley Enoch and Deborah Mailman

A Queensland Theatre and Grin and Tonic Theatre Troupe production

Here’s your chance to see a new adaptation of one of Australia’s most important plays, created 20 years ago and still speaking volumes today.

One of Australia’s most exciting young actors Chenoa Deemal  spins poignant stories of different people from different mobs —  tear-streaked tales of tragedy side by side with joyful celebrations of simple survival.

Funny, devastatingly sad, and as important as ever, The 7 Stages of Grieving traverses the phases of Aboriginal history, inviting us to face hard truths, join hands and grieve together.

Penned by Wesley Enoch and Deborah Mailman, their original script has been skilfully updated to reflect today’s political climate, including current political references to make it relevant to a contemporary audience. The refreshed version of the play also reflects the changing attitudes of Australians, exploring Aboriginal peoples’ grief and the hope for reconciliation.

And perhaps most importantly, The 7 Stages of Grieving opens a dialogue about the issues that separate and unite Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in Australia today.

This will be a truly memorable night of theatre.
