The Long Way Home
Sydney Theatre Company presents
The Long Way Home

1 Apr 2014 to 5 Apr 2014

Sydney Theatre Company and the Australian Defence Force present
THE LONG WAY HOME
By Daniel Keene

We shall overcome

Created from first-hand accounts, The Long Way Home reflects the Australian Defence Force's recent experiences on operations in Iraq, Afghanistan and East Timor as well as humanitarian and disaster relief.

As we approach the centenary of the beginning of The Great War, Australia and the world will pause and find their own ways to explore the impact of this war on their lives and minds. 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, inspiring and unforgettable event.

British director Stephen Rayne and multi-award-winning Australian writer Daniel Keene have shaped a powerful piece of theatre, featuring military personnel recovering from physical and psychological injuries. These servicemen and women will perform alongside professional actors as part of a broader rehabilitation program that will assist their recovery. We open a door on their lives while deployed on operations and illuminate the challenges of their return to everyday life.

This major new work will embark on a national tour following its performances in Sydney.
