The Bush Theatre and HighTide Festival Theatre present the European premiere of a new play about the transport of British orphans to Australia in the 1940s, 50s and 60s.

Written by Tom Holloway, Forget Me Not tells the story of how more than 3,000 British children were told they were orphans and sent to Australia on a promise of warmth, fresh air, abundant food and boundless opportunity between 1945 and 1968. Instead they arrived to deprived institutions where neglect and abuse were the norm.

Directed by HighTide’s Artistic Director Steven Atkinson, the tender play unearths a secret buried by time that, in turn, exposes a world of historical injustices currently in the limelight.
