Description - Beautiful Words by Sean Riley

An epic chronicle of the refugee experience, "Beautiful Words" weaves together three very different stories of survival, told through the eyes of three children in different times and places. The outcome is heart-rending, humorous, and surprising by turns. From the horrors of Auschwitz Concentration Camp in the final days of World War II, to Taliban-ruled Kabul, to present day Australia, this enthralling play presents a rich tapestry of human experience, overlapping lives, and the bonds that unite generations. Over three hours, with some 20 characters, "Beautiful Words" tells an engaging story with poignant comedy and unashamed feeling. (3 acts, 6 male, 3 female).
