GERRY: She reckons I must have an aunty or something over there and that I should go and look them up. Gerry is almost 60, and he is going to meet his mother for the first time since he was three. The old lady lives somewhere in the UK. Liverpool, according to the records. So Gerry is going there to find out what made him who he is. SALLY: I got a call from Mark, he’s in England. He’s found someone. GERRY: Who’s he found? Forget Me Not by Tom Holloway tells the story of one forgotten Australian and his reconnection with family. The 250,000 children taken from predominantly single women in the UK between the 50s and 70s were promised a better life: a life of oranges and sunshine. Children taken were told by authorities that they were orphans and many were indeed raised in orphanages in Australia, some abused and used as nothing more than slave labour. MARK: I’m hoping you’re Mary Connor. MARY: You’ve got the wrong place. I don’t know who you’re talking about so clear off. MARK: It’s about your son. Holloway’s brilliant leap of imagination has been to set this story not at its outset half a century ago, but here and now. He has written a series of raw, beautiful conversations between members of a scattered family. Drawing it all together is Gerry’s extraordinary, precarious bid to finally learn what it means to love and belong to a family. MARY: I came home from work and you were just gone. ‘Your son has gone. He’s gone somewhere better’ That’s what he said - somewhere better. “One of the finest pieces of writing currently on Sydney stages, remarkably acted and honest, it is one of the best plays of the year.” Aussie Theatre “Holloway’s restrained script places special emphasis on the lingering uneasy silences that sit alongside the sorrow of Gerry’s ordeal”. Sydney Morning Herald “Forget Me Not is crafted carefully and so effectively, by Holloway. After an interval, a heart-breaking twist wrenches us into the depths of meta-theatre. We are all heart-broken as we drift towards a frail denouement. This is a wonderful piece of theatre… I shall be keeping an eye out for Holloway’s return to the London stage in the future”.

You simply need to be very dedicated to theatre, and want to learn. You WILL be seen in front of the public. Please go to the link above, as this is a COURSE that enables you to perform and learn. It therefore involves a set of fees, and we wish to be entirely UPFRONT about this.
