National Theatre of Parramatta is pleased to bring Stolen back to Riverside Theatres in 2018 following its successful premiere in our 2016 season. Stolen will also be touring in 2018.

A must see for all Australians. Insightful and moving, Stolen tells the stories of five individuals from the Stolen Generations.

What happens in a world without family? What happens to a person who lives without love? A world where there is no one to keep you safe. Does our sense of family and community influence our future?

This play is as relevant today as it was twenty years ago.  Themes of loss and love, the poignancy of five children’s experiences, struggling to make sense of their world.

Stolen will continue to resonate long after you return to your home.

Insightful and poignant, Stolen tells the stories of five individuals from the stolen generation twenty years on from its original staging, Vicki Van Hout brings a fresh interpretation to this tender and moving play which revisits Jane Harrison’s important historical text in the context of Australia today.

National Theatre of Parramatta premiered this new production of this acclaimed Australian classic in 2016, directed by renowned Aboriginal performance maker, Vicki Van Hout.
