More Information about the production:
Brink Productions and State Theatre Company are presenting their production of Long Tan by Verity Laughton at the Space Theatre, Adelaide Festival Centre.
Long Tan was written by Verity Laughton based on interviews with the surviving Australian soldiers from the Battle of Long Tan, Vietnamese contributors and the family and friends of those who died in the battle. Long Tan is directed by the award winning Chris Drummond (When the Rain Stops Falling and The Aspirations of Daise Morrow), and brings together a cast of 12 South Australian actors.
Long Tan is not your ordinary theatre event. It is an immersive audio-theatre production that will parachute you into the soldiers’ experience – gunfire, mortar fire, pounding rain, insect clouds, screams and sudden fire. Long Tan is not only about the battle but also about fractures in the collective memory, the consequences of extreme demands on soldiers, the need for forgiveness, empathy and faith in common humanity.
Please note that this play contains strong language, depictions of violence, strobe lighting, haze effects, gunfire and themes that may cause distress to some audience members. All audience members wear headphones during the entire performance.
