Ten Years to Home
Ten Years to Home by Sonal Moore tells the story of why her parents first came to Australia and what made them stay. Looked at through the eyes of three generations of women, the play reveals the challenges faced by an Indian family living a long way from home and in a predominantly white Australia. It also shows the friendship that was extended to them until ten years later, Australia had also become home. The play centres on Sonal’s parents’ story while the stories of Sonal and her two daughters show the crossover of the Indian and Australian cultures. Sonal’s father is the common thread through the play. The play spans 10 years and gives a snapshot into the change of both India and Australia in the 1960s which ultimately paved the way for the greater Asian migration in the early 1970s.
Two shows are scheduled on 2nd & 3rd August 2019 at Riverside Theatre, Parramatta.
