                                                  "Cast from the Storm"

"Cast from the Storm" tells the tender story of a group of teenage refugees. 

Asfar, Maryam and Wiam face the usual challenges of navigating high school – with one difference. They were forced to leave their home countries and everything they knew behind. Now in Australia, they must start not only a new school, in a new country – but also a new life.

The three teenagers join Treehouse Theatre – an after-school theatre group. Guided by three dedicated teachers, they enter into a community that supports them to share their ‘storm stories’. Their history is scripted and transformed into a moving stage performance. Through this process, Asfar, Maryam, Wiam, and 20 other participants move from being defined by their trauma to taking control of their futures.

This isn’t your typical refugee film. A coming of age story, this uplifting documentary shares the reality of what it means to be a teenager and a displaced person. This is the story of what comes after, and what it means to remake your home.

Come along to the Little Theatre on Saturday 12th November at 7pm.

Entry is a gold coin donation.        We'd love to see you there.
