Who Speaks For Me?

“……one of the most heartwarming things on stage this year…Their stories remind the audience of the resilience at the heart of the refugee and migrant experience.”  ★★★★


Discover the unexpected stories of Western Sydney in this intimate multi-lingual, multi-generational storytelling show.

Through the personal narratives and photographs of three families from Cambodia, Vietnam and Bhutan
Who Speaks For Me?
