A.B. Facey’s A Fortunate Life
Resilience, fortitude, love… an ordinary man’s extraordinary life in 20th Century Western Australia.
A striking collaboration between artists of stage and screen honours the trials and triumphs of extraordinary everyman A.B Facey, whose award-winning Australian classic autobiography, A Fortunate Life, has been adapted for theatrical presentation.
‘A Fortunate Life’ embraces themes that are intrinsic to our history and culture as modern Australians – resilience, fortitude, hope and integrity, bringing the beloved bushland to the big screen and placing humanity centre-stage.
As A.B Facey’s extraordinary story unfolds, audiovisual projections and live actors evoke distinct natural environments, definitive historic events, and the daily grind of farmers, settlers and city dwellers throughout 20th Century Western Australia.
“This show has everything: endearing characters, love, loss, humour, and at its core – heart.” – Fourth Wall Media
