Motherland intertwines the true stories of three very different women from different times, united in the heartache of exile from their homelands. This is passionate, contemporary theatre, weaving multiple stories of home, belonging, love and loss that span decades, continents and revolutions.
A story about women, a story about war, Motherland is a must-see.
Head over to Arts Theatre from May 6 - May 7, 2016 and watch Motherland.
Brisbane socialite, Nelle Tritton, married the Russian Prime Minister and helped him escape from the Nazis during World War II. Feisty writer and academic Nina Berberova quit her native Russia for Paris, but returned in her twilight years. Single mother Alyona is a Russian museum curator whisked away to Brisbane by an Australian businessman.
From the chaos of a Russian military coup, through the hell of Nazi-occupied France to a turbulent Brisbane in the throes of the Fitzgerald Inquiry, Brisbane playwright Katherine Lyall-Watson has penned an intricately researched historical drama about how world-changing events can ripple out and take a toll on everyday lives.
