Lessons in Flight

By Maryanne Sam

Two wildly different sisters, Menan, shy and conservative and Rita, outgoing and unpredictable, haven’t spoken in years.

Now in hospital with a life threatening illness, Menan looks back on a life full of regret and lost opportunities when out of the blue, the outrageous Rita shows up, turning everything on its head.

Lessons in Flight by celebrated indigenous playwright Maryanne Sam is a beautiful, gentle, gutsy play that casts a fresh eye over the contemporary indigenous urban experience.

 

Featured at the 3rd Victorian Indigenous Playwrights’ Conference 2003, the Australian National Playwrights’ Conference 2005 and the World Indigenous Theatre Reading 2007, Lessons in Flight is a story not often told on the Australian stage.

Presented by Darlinghurst Theatre Company and Frederick Copperwaite
