Presented by Minola Theatre
A sceptic. A paranoiac. A criminal. A migrant. A hostage.
BEGOTTEN is the 100-year history of a family, told through the eyes of five women. In Alice, Eileen, Clea, Hazel and Laoise, we see dignities lost and claimed, hearts shattered and mended, and the thread of feminine soul passed down through five generations. This powerful work by award-winning Brisbane playwright Bianca Butler Reynolds explores the changing role of women over time, the fight for female autonomy, the complexities of motherhood, and the echoes of the past that resonate in the present.
BEGOTTEN has been praised by past audiences as “spell binding”, “emotional”, “raw”, “heart touching”, and “beautiful and achingly sad”.
Minola Theatre presented BEGOTTEN online as an audio drama with the support of Anywhere Festival in 2020, and were Highly Commended for their production of Mary Anne Butler’s HIGHWAY OF LOST HEARTS for Anywhere Festival in 2019.
