Sydney Theatre Company and Allens present
THE LONG FORGOTTEN DREAM
By H Lawrence Sumner

World premiere

You can’t bury the past

This is an exceptional piece of writing by one of the most exciting new voices to come along in years.

Inspired by true stories of the repatriation of stolen bones, Ngarrindjeri writer H Lawrence Sumner’s play is a sweeping family story that examines four generations of history in a rural community.

Jeremiah Tucker is a man looking for peace. His daughter Simone is an archaeologist looking for bones. Her great-grandfather just wants to be buried where he belongs. Together, they will uncover the past’s brutal secrets as well as hope for a way forward.

Two of our country’s most lauded theatre makers, director Neil Armfield and actor Wayne Blair, unite to bring this monumental new work to the stage.

Set on the windswept coastline of South Australia’s Coorong region, The Long Forgotten Dream is a deeply human story weaving together wry humour, poetic imagery, and a captivating array of richly drawn characters. There’s even a little magic. Together, it promises a wonderful night in the theatre.

“Finally something deep and good is happening. Something that you don’t understand.”
Jeremiah
