A unique and captivating glimpse into the lives of incredible Australians is coming to The Art House in the double bill STARDUST + THE MISSION. This “two-shows-in-one” piece of theatre drama features two powerful yet forgotten stories presented by award-winning ABC presenter Joel Carnegie and acclaimed Gunditjmara actor Tom Molyneux.
Wonderfully timed in the lead up to ANZAC Day, Stardust + The Mission plays one night on April 5th as part of a six-month National Tour and gives us pause to reflect on the rich history, stories, and ancestry of our country.
STARDUST is the award-winning story of Col Brain, one of the best jazz musicians of his generation. Thirty years after his passing, his grandson Joel Carnegie discovered a hidden time capsule of his grandfather’s music and memories now shared on stage.
THE MISSION is a First Nations story, with Gunditjmara actor, Tom Molyneux telling the rollicking tale of his Great-Great Uncle Allan, an Aboriginal soldier, who fought for Australia in WWI. On return home he was denied a soldier’s settlement and forced from his land in Victoria in a story of war, love, and loss.
“This show (Stardust) truly is a treat…” ABC Radio National

“What an absolute triumph. I was blown away by the stories, both so, so powerful. I feel so moved.” Audience member
