"Stolen" tells of five Aboriginal children forcibly removed from their families, brought up in a repressive children's home and trained for domestic service and other menial jobs. Segregated from their community, after their release they begin their journey 'home', not all of them successfully. The pain, the poignancy and sheer desperation of their lives is seen through the children's own eyes as they struggle to make sense of a world where they have been told to forget their families, forget their homes and forget their culture. This tender and moving story, awash with the humour of innocents, goes further than any previous account to bring the tragic story of the Stolen Generations to the Australian stage. 1 act, 2 male, 3 female.
