The 7 Stages of Grieving

Shari Sebbens performing The 7 Stages of Grieving

Our Richard Wherrett Fellow Shari Sebbens is back with another excerpt from one of Australia’s great Indigenous plays. Here she performs a monologue from The 7 Stages of Grieving by Wesley Enoch and Deborah Mailman. This year marks the 25th anniversary of this groundbreaking work and it’s a wonderful reflection on resilience, kinship and autonomy, tracing the history of Indigenous Australia since colonisation. Our Associate Director Paige Rattray directs Shari in this short piece ‘Plea’.
