premiere of a thoughtful new work about race, class and footy.

BANNED
6 – 10 FEBRUARY 2018, THE BLUE ROOM THEATRE
“I got one son, that’s why I’m ‘ere to make this right for ‘im. Don’t matter what I bin through.”

An ugly incident at her son’s football game results in time in jail and a life-time ban from future footy matches for Kaarla. Now she wants the ban lifted. But Jane, the injured party, wants blood. Mediation is a last-ditch, volatile shot at negotiating some form of mutual justice. Can these two women move from hurt and hatred, towards reconciliation and forgiveness?
Banned is the thought-provoking professional debut by emerging playwright Barbara Hostalek, and is directed by award-winning playwright and director, Hellie Turner.

Banned is made possible through Playwriting Australia and Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company’s Next Step Program, which gives the opportunity for further development with Indigenous artists who engage in the theatre sector.
