Presenters fortyfivedownstairs
Description fortyfivedownstairs, in association with Melbourne Festival present Taki Rua's raw, humorous and unsentimental story of Michael James Manaia, written by John Broughton.

A poignant story about a man who returns from the Vietnam War struggling with his culture and history. Intergenerational tension, childhood trauma and the pain of post-wartime experience are woven into this profoundly moving piece of theatre.

It's not to be missed.

Contains strong coarse language and is recommended for mature audiences.
