Charlie’s life changed a lot when his father was deployed to Afghanistan, but it changed even more when he returned with the scars of war. Charlie is sent to live with his Aunt Angela, who’s quite country life is no contest for the action and adventure that lives inside his video games.
Angela is what some would consider a collector, or to others a hoarder. But amongst the sea of knick-knack’s and bric-a-brac, there is a treasure trove of priceless letters that are set to take these two unlikely allies on a life-changing journey.
Moving seamlessly between the journey of a 13-year-old in contemporary Australian and a 16-year-old on The Western Front in 1916, this beautiful play from Sandra Eldridge is an uplifting exploration of how we carry our past into our present.
