55 minutes somehow packs in 60,000 years of cultural experience The Australian

 A Queensland Theatre & Grin and Tonic Theatre Troupe Production

Remaining a vital masterwork 20 years after it was penned by Wesley Enoch and Deborah Mailman, this new adaption of The 7 Stages of Grieving is a wise and powerful play about the grief of Aboriginal people and the hope of reconciliation.

In this one-woman show, Chenoa Deemal spins poignant stories of different people from different mobs – tear-streaked tales of tragedy go hand-in-hand with jubilant celebrations of simple survival.

Funny, devastatingly sad, politically relevant and culturally profound, The 7 Stages of Grieving traverses the phases of Aboriginal history, offering an invitation to face hard truths, join hands and grieve. It shares true and personal stories that need to keep being told.
