Don't Ask What The Bird Look Like

30 Apr 2022 to 14 May 2022

A GENTLY FUNNY, ALMOST GOTHIC TALE ABOUT LAND, FAMILY AND RECONNECTION.

Joan needs her father. She hasn't seen him since he left her and her Mum when she was just a little girl. She wants answers. she wants history, she wants to know more about who she is. She travels a long way into country as remote as it is strange to this city girl. She finds Mick; a man who doesn't speak much, and who bears little resemblance to the man who taught her to play Scrabble all those years ago.

But amid the flies. the heat. the dust and the stillness of this small river town, lurk many ghosts and mysteries. Over cups of tea and Scrabble in Mick's weather-beaten old house, Joan is about to discover some family secrets that have been hidden below the surface for decades.

With a light touch of humour and a philosophical undercurrent, don't ask what the bird look like is an intimate work from an exciting new First Nations voice — a heart-warming meditation on the search for identity and belonging, directed by Queensland Theatre's Associate Artist, Isaac Drandic.
