Uncle Jack Charles is an Australian legend: veteran actor, Koori Elder, activist and – until recently – heroin addict and cat-burglar.

His is a life lived to its limit, and this is his story.

From Stolen Generation to Koori theatre in the 70s, film sets and Her Majesty’s prisons, Jack tells his captivating tale with humour, warmth, honesty and charm … and a few songs along the way.

Images of drug use.

Steeped in decades of our history (social, political, theatrical), surprisingly upbeat … a warm-hearted, very entertaining evening. SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

A standing ovation. THE COURIER MAIL
