My Sister Jill

La Mama Theatre

Event Date: 11 December 2021 to 12 December 2021

A family saga examines the legacy of war.

Jack’s a survivor. He survived the Second World War. He survived as a POW in Changi, on the Burma Railway. He survived a shipwreck on the way to Japan. But at what cost? Can his children survive Jack? This is a family in constant battle to survive. And it’s Jack who is the enemy and a formidable one.

This is a free event in La Mama’s War-Rak/Banksia Festival
