THE LONG WAY HOME
WE OPEN A DOOR INTO THE LIVES OF AUSTRALIAN SERVICEMEN AND WOMEN WHILE ON DUTY.
WE SHALL OVERCOME.
Sydney Theatre Company has embarked upon an historic endeavour with the Australian Defence Force to present this major new work, taking the words and experiences of servicemen and women to create a unique, uplifting and unforgettable event.
Created from first-hand accounts, The Long Way Home dramatises the experiences of military service on operations in Iraq, Afghanistan and East Timor as well as humanitarian and disaster relief and protecting Australia’s borders.
Director Stephen Rayne and multi-award-winning writer Daniel Keene have shaped a powerful piece of theatre. Featuring performers drawn from military personnel recovering from physical and psychological injuries, and professional actors as part of a broader rehabilitation program.
As we approach the centenary of the beginning of the Great War, it is time to take stock and explore the impact of war on the lives and minds of Australians.
