GRACE

BASED ON THE NOVEL BY ROBERT DREWE, ADAPTED BY HUMPHREY BOWER

SUITABILITY: Year 10–12 English, Society & Environment, Drama, Aboriginal & Intercultural Studies, Literature
THEMES: Fear, predudice, asylum seekers

Grace finds herself pursued by a stalker. He haunts her in cinemas, writes psychotic letters and breaks into her flat. Losing her boyfriend, her job and nearly losing her mind, she flees the city and goes into hiding in a crocodile park in the Kimberley. Meanwhile her father unearths an ancient skeleton that brings into question the very origins of the human race.

Part thriller, part road movie, part film-noir, this is an epic tale that travels from inner-city Sydney to the Great Sandy Desert. Adapted from the celebrated novel by Robert Drewe, this new theatrical feast is wryly satirical and heartbreakingly moving. Grace is a gripping story with heart, humour and passion.
