Conversations with Dead Relatives

These are stories that have been told and retold over breakfast tables, barbeques, campfires, and drunken dinner parties.

These are stories that have been told and retold over breakfast tables, barbeques, campfires, and drunken dinner parties. Epic and incredible family stories passed down through generations about warriors, princesses, ratbags, preachers and visionaries; stories that tell us where we came from and who we are. Maybe. Like all good stories there are clashes of ideals, moral dilemmas, epic adventures and romantic tales of love and hope. But above all, these stories make us question our obligations to our ancestors. Is it enough to just tell their stories?

Written and performed by Alex Ellis and Phil Ormsby. Directed by Jennifer Ward-Lealand.
