When Evey is forced to relocate her life from an Indigenous community in St George to Brisbane city, she finds herself caught between two cultures.

Jo, a neighbouring Indigenous musician is a constant reminder of the culture they once shared, while Ken, her white landlord, is well meaning but unknowingly racist. When Indigenous Affairs worker Malcolm moves into the building, he persuades Evey to buy into the white man’s world. But will his plan come undone?

“Yarnin’ Up was one of the most subtle and original pieces of theatre I have ever had the pleasure to view, and should be compulsory viewing for all Australians.” - M/C Reviews
