Two powerful yet forgotten Australian stories uncovering our past to reveal who we are today. 

Stardust Written & Performed by Joel Carnegie 

 tells the story of bandleader and trumpet player Col Brain. Before he died, Col placed his most prized life possessions into a cupboard and locked it up, never to be opened again. But what was inside? Told by his grandson, award winning ABC presenter & performer, Joel Carnegie, Stardust is a heart-warming musical quest to uncover what Col wanted us to know about his life by the things he left behind. 

The Mission Written & Performed by Tom Molyneux 

The Mission follows “Fighting Gunditjmara” man Allan McDonald off to war. As one of the first Aboriginal soldiers from Victoria to enlist, Allan fought at Gallipoli and Beersheba, only to be denied a soldier’s settlement upon return and forced from his traditional land. Told by his great, great nephew, acclaimed Gunditjmara actor Tom Molyneux, The Mission tells the truth of Uncle Allan’s struggle; fighting for Country, for love, and for justice. 

Experience this award-winning double bill and meet two ordinary individuals, whose extraordinary lives still reverberate to this day.
