2014 PRODUCTIONS

Written by Geoffrey Narkle & David Milroy Directed by Kyle J Morrison

Featuring Clarence Ryan, Karla Hart, Maitland Schnaars and Ben D'Addario

This critically acclaimed play strikes at the very heart of the Stolen Generation, exploring the impact on an individual and a culture when relationships and family bonds are brutally broken. Told with great impact and from a uniquely Noongar perspective, King Hit features an all-Western Australian cast, directed by Kyle J Morrison.

Based on the life story of Geoffrey Narkle, King Hit mirrors the lives of many Aboriginal people of his generation. Forcibly removed from his family, Geoffrey was raised on Wandering Mission before leaving to join Stewart's Boxing Troupe, where he travelled the South West as a tent boxer.

Ultimately it would be Geoffrey's fighting spirit that gave him the strength to turn away from a downward spiral of despair and find peace within and reconcile broken family bonds.

“A powerful theatrical event” – The Australian

“Highly entertaining as well as very moving” – The West Australian

King Hit was originally presented by Yirra Yaakin in 1997.
