Running with Emus at La Mama
About Running with Emus
Running with Emus is a new play by award-winning regional playwright Merrilee Moss about refugees, identity and belonging. Seventy-six year old Pat has dropped out of life. She is living on her veranda, watching birds, when her granddaughter arrives to stir up the town. Throw into the mix an Italian ghost from the past, a bigoted Mayor and a chorus of laconic locals and you have a story about what it is to be Australian in a multicultural world.
A VCE, Theatre Studies, Unit 3 production.
