12 September - 11 October 2008
They say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.
Every year, a tiny group of unique individuals give up a regular lifestyle to begin an extraordinary undertaking.
Banding together, they are recruited to bring relief to the world’s trouble spots. Delivering humanitarian or medical aid, they offer hope to those living on the edge of human tolerance – well, at least, that’s what they signed up for.
But when politics impedes progress, and reality shatters aspiration, the only consistence is compromise. So what keeps these individuals coming back?
Revealing personal stories with a compassionate eye and a gallows humour, Damien Millar offers a compelling, practical perspective on international aid in this World Premiere of a new Australian verbatim theatre play.
