Monkey Baa Theatre Company premieres a brand new play The Unknown Soldier on May 18-22 at Lend Lease Darling Quarter Theatre, Darling Harbour.
Set on the battlefields of WW1, and in twenty first century Australia, the play follows the dual journeys of a 16-year-old soldier fighting for King and Country, and a modern day 13-year-old boy who questions how can a soldier simply just disappear.
Written by Monkey Baa Creative Director, Sandra Eldridge the show explores the themes of the Unknown Soldier- who is he? And what does he represent to young Australians today?
Sandra Eldridge says “As a company who has specifically adapted Australian books for the stage, Monkey Baa is particularly proud to present The Unknown Soldier - our first entirely new work. Conceived through examining war archives, diary extracts, books and poetry during my travels around Australia, this project has presented us a new and exciting way of creating a play for young people”.
Starring Sandra Eldridge and Felix Johnson,The Unknown Soldier is directed by Matt Edgerton and is suitable for all Australians aged 10+.
