As we continue our ninth season, we are very happy to have acquired
rights to present two gripping plays from Australia: Forget Me Not by
Tom Holloway and Windmill Baby by David Milroy.
Forget Me Not is
the story of a man who was shipped to
Australia when he was three years old. And of his mother, who never
stopped celebrating her little boy’s birthday. And of his learning about
himself—and about what it means to love. Directed by Philip Boehm. Stage
design by Michael Heil, costumes by Bonnie Kruger, lighting by Steve
Carmichael and props by Claudia Mink Horn. With Maggie Conroy, Terry
Meddows, Jerry Vogel and Donna Weinsting.

In April we will open
David Milroy’s award-winning Windmill Baby, an enthralling one-woman
show about Maymay (played by Linda Kennedy), an aging Aboriginal woman
who has returned briefly to her old camp on the cattle station where she
once lived. With warmth, wit, and great heart she tells a story of many
layers. Of Black Australians in the service of White Australia. Of
unexpected romance and sudden ruination. Of overcoming heartbreak and
—most wonderfully of all—of enduring love.
