May 2017 marks 50 years since the 1967 Referendum, when the Australian voting public elected to amend the constitution to allow for Aboriginal people to be counted in the census. Twenty years later the Australian Government appointed a Royal Commission to study and report on Aboriginal deaths in custody. Three decades on and the question is raised – how far have we come as a nation with respect to the treatment of Indigenous peoples?

Yirra Yaakin asks this question with their production of Richard Frankland MA’s powerful play Conversations With The Dead, showing at the Subiaco Arts Centre this month.
