“We just carried on... even with our loved ones away for so long. Everyone shared things... food, knitting and dressmaking patterns. There was this great feeling of pulling together... of making do.”
Based on the wartime memories of twenty-four men and women from Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast, Snapshots from Home shares the stories of ordinary people living through extraordinary times. An honest, heartbreaking, and hilariously funny glimpse at the realities of life on the home front during World War Two.
Commissioned to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the end of WWII in the Pacific, the play combines a series of ‘snapshots’, linked together by visual images, radio broadcasts, dance, music and song.
