Remaining a vital masterwork 20 years after it was penned by Wesley Enoch and Deborah Mailman, The 7 Stages of Grieving is a wise and powerful play about the grief of Aboriginal people and the hope of reconciliation.
In this one-woman show, Chenoa Deemal (Queensland Theatre’s Mother Courage and Her Children) spins poignant stories of different people from different mobs – where tear-streaked tales of tragedy go hand-in-hand with jubilant celebrations of simple survival.
The production is based around seven different aspects of grief, telling seven different tales; encompassing family funerals, black displacement, the impact of European wars and other stories. The design elements are based on the environment of Chenoa’s youth: the rainbow coloured sands, the tropical rainforest, and the artworks of the local people.
Funny, devastatingly sad, politically relevant and culturally profound as it traverses the phases of Aboriginal history, The 7 Stages of Grieving is an invitation to face hard truths, to join hands and grieve. It shares true and personal stories that need to keep being told. And perhaps, most importantly, it opens a dialogue about the issues that separate and unite Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.
