Letters to Lindy

18 Aug, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Filled with humour and heartbreak, this stunning work by playwright Alana Valentine explores the public’s relationship with one of Australia’s most iconic figures – Lindy Chamberlain.

Over three decades, from baby Azaria’s death to the final coroner’s report, there have been more than 20,000 letters to Lindy, including sympathy, abuse, marriage proposals and death threats. Filled with humour and heartbreak, this stunning work by playwright Alana Valentine explores the public’s relationship with one of Australia’s most iconic figures – Lindy Chamberlain. This powerful play paints a singular portrait of the heartbreak, wisdom and resilience of a grieving mother. As a special addition for Katherine, performers will be available after the show for a question and answer session. Artback NT presents Letters to Lindy by Alana Valentine, a Merrigong Theatre Company production in association with Canberra Theatre Centre.

“The most powerful thing that has been done on my story, and the most true to what I lived through.”

Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton
