A mother's loss.  A nation's obsession.

 

Artback NT presents a Merrigong Theatre Company production in association with Canberra Theatre Centre

 

Join the original cast for a play-reading and post-show Q+A of award-winning playwright Alana Valetine's touring production Letters to Lindy.


This story captivated a nation. Amother accused of murdering her child, her claim - that the baby was taken by a dingo - denied and discredited by zealous police and a flawed legal system. The media circus, the rumours, the mob mentality, and a nation's prejudice laid bare.

 

Over three decades, from baby Azaria's death to the final coroner's report, the public wrote more than 20,000 letters to Lindy Chamberlain. From sympathy to abuse, letters from children and letters from those who have lolst a child, these letters traverse the gamut of human response to Lindy's story.

 

Letters to Lindy draws on this correspondence, as well as extensive interviews with Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton herself, to create an enthralling, moving, and long over due dialogue between Lindy and the nation.

 

Filled with warmth, humour and heartbreak, this new work explores the public's relationship with one of the 20th Century Australia's most iconic figures.
