Uncle Jack Charles is an Australian legend: veteran actor, Koori Elder, activist and - until recently - heroin addict and cat-burglar.
His is a life lived to its limit, and this is his story.
From Stolen Generation to Koori theatre in the 70s, film sets and Her Majesty's prisons, Jack tells his captivating tale with humour, warmth, honesty and charm ... and a few songs along the way.
Friends of the Festival Artist Talk Wed 22 Feb, post-show (Free to all ticket holders)
Steeped in decades of our history (social, political, theatrical), surprisingly upbeat ... a warm-hearted, very entertaining evening. SYDNEY MORNING HERALD
