It creates a resonant `snapshot' of one particular Koori family to dramatise the struggle for decent housing, meaningful education, jobs and community acceptance; the acclaimed King Hit by Geoffrey Narkle and David Milroy, tells the remarkable life story of Geoffrey Narkle which strikes at the very heart of the Stolen Generation, exploring the impact on an individual and a Culture when relationships are brutally broken; and Windmill Baby by David Milroy. Winner of the 2003 Patrick White Award (the only indigenous play to win this award).
