Darwin. 1942. A town collapses under the threat of invasion as war comes closer to Northern Australia. Mothers and daughters, sisters, friends, and entire cultures are torn apart by the secrets that start to fall. Is Mr Takahashi to blame?
Japan unleashes a wave of attacks on Northern Australia, with particularly devastating effects on Darwin – the city being hit with more bombs than Pearl Harbor. Mr Takahashi examines the home front, focusing upon multicultural and Indigenous women whose lives were forever changed by the bombings of February 19.
Produced by Corrugated Iron in association with JUTE Theatre Company (Cairns), Mr Takahashi (and Other Falling Secrets) will be staged this February to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the Bombing of Darwin.
Don’t miss the opportunity to see this powerful theatrical representation of important local history, penned by local award-winning playwright Sandra Thibodeaux and directed by Suellen Maunder.
The play runs for approximately 85 minutes with one 20 minute interval. Rated G.
