Bringing theatre to SA’s regions

SISTA GIRL: Natasha Wanganeen and Nadia Rossi.

SISTA GIRL: Natasha Wanganeen and Nadia Rossi.

Two young women meet face to face for the first time across the bed of a dying man. Strangers to each other but bonded by blood and grief.

Starring Rabbit Proof Fence’s Natasha Wanganeen and Nadia Rossi, Sista Girl is an exploration of the relationship between indigenous and non-indigenous Australians, via the story of two women who share a white father.

Whyalla-born, Port Pirie-raised Elena Carapetis, who is the State Theatre Company South Australia’s resident artist for 2017, co-wrote the production with Alexis West.

Sista Girl is the second work to tour to regional South Australia as part of a new four-year strategy between Country Arts SA and State Theatre Company South Australia.

Sista Girl will be on at the Nautilus Theatre in Port Lincoln on Monday, May 22 at 11am.

The show is part of the State Theatre Company’s Education Program but there are limited tickets for the general public.
