forgotten
Forgotten is an exciting new play using convict case studies and based on the 1827 Parramatta Female Factory Prison Rebellion and the illegal incarceration of convict, Jane New (Jane was at the factory a year later but for dramatic effect is put there at the time of the rebellion).
Tickets will be available on the Riverside website by mid June and will sell out quickly. (Members can contact Cate: catewhit@tpg.com.au for further details).

The play is produced and directed by the Catholic Drama Education Team, Captivate. It will be used as a forum for educational development in Drama, English and History in schools with a Question and Answer Session after the Wednesday matinee performance. Forgotten is written by Cate Whittaker.
