Presented by ILBIJERRI

A road trip comedy 80,000 years in the making.

Tash and her Dad are going on a road trip. Home to country, where the sky is higher and the world goes on forever.
 
It’s a long way from the wide streets and big old houses of Tash’s childhood. Two Black faces in a very white suburb. Dad still thinks he’s the king of cool, but he’s an old fella now. It’s time for Tash to take him home.
 
ILBIJERRI Theatre Company tells stories about what it means to be Indigenous in Australia today. Infused with humour and heart WHICH WAY HOME draws on writer Katie Beckett’s own memories of growing up with her single Aboriginal father.

ILBIJERRI is also thrilled to announce the casting of Kamahi Djordon King alongside Katie Beckett. Hailing from Katherine in the Northern Territory, Kamahi is a Helpmann nominated performer who has toured extensively across Australia and the world with productions such as The Shadow King, Finucane & Smith, Blak Cabaret and Wulamanayuwi and the Seven Pamanui. Artistic Director Rachael Maza said "Kamahi is a generous performer who will bring so much humour and heart to this role. As the father-daughter protagonists he and Katie have a natural rapport that will endear them to audiences across Australia".
