A road trip comedy 80,000 years in the making.



Tash and her Dad are going on a road trip. Home to country, where the sky is higher and the world goes on forever.

It’s a long way from the wide streets and big old houses of Tash’s childhood. Two Black faces in a very white suburb. Dad still thinks he’s the king of cool, but he’s an old fella now. It’s time for Tash to take him home.

ILBIJERRI Theatre Company tells stories about what it means to be Indigenous in Australia today. Infused with humour and heart WHICH WAY HOME draws on writer Katie Beckett’s own memories of growing up with her single Aboriginal father.

ILBIJERRI is one of Australia’s leading theatre companies creating innovative works by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists. Our productions have toured to critical acclaim across Australia and the world. We challenge and excite our audiences with contemporary stories about what it means to be Indigenous in Australia today. Established in 1990 ILBIJERRI is the longest running Indigenous theatre company in Australia. Our creative processes support the empowerment of Indigenous artists and communities to have a powerful voice in determining the future of Australia.
