WE ARE SURVIVORS

by Jim Everett

Included in the Of The Island Collection

We Are Survivors premiered in the Peacock Theatre, Hobart in 1984 for the Salamanca Arts Festival. It was re-produced the following year in Hobart and Launceston. It was the playwright's Tasmanian response to Jack Davis' ground-breaking play, The Dreamers. He was so moved after seeing it that he went home and wrote his first full length play in a single afternoon. We Are Survivors is a raw and clear-eyed portrayal of the circumstances facing Tasmanian Aboriginal people in the post World War II years and the forces which shaped their emerging political activism.
