The Long Forgotten Dream

You can’t bury the past

Inspired by true stories of the repatriation of stolen bones, Ngarrindjeri writer H Lawrence Sumner’s play is a sweeping family story. The work examines 4 generations of history in a rural community.

Jeremiah Tucker is a man looking for peace. His daughter Simone is an archaeologist looking for bones. Her great-grandfather just wants to be buried where he belongs. Together, they will uncover the past’s brutal secrets as well as hope for a way forward.

Set on the windswept coastline of South Australia’s Coorong region, The Long Forgotten Dream is a deeply human story. The play weaves together wry humour, poetic imagery and a captivating array of richly drawn characters. There’s even a little magic. Together, it promises a wonderful night in the theatre.
