The Storyteller is sad to announce the postponement of their production of An Indigenous Trilogy that was scheduled to be presented by La Mama theatre in November.

The production has taken the difficult step to postpone the season due to the uncertainty around COVID-19 lockdowns and the impact this may have on rehearsals. This precious story has been in development for over 20 years, and they intend to give the work its best possible life.

Although a disappointing development, we are confident in the new dates secured for May 2022.
