Dear RNLDers,

A new play by the Yirra Yakin Aboriginal Corporation opens in Perth next
week. Mother's Tongue
<>is a
contemporary Indigenous story about David and Ngala, a brother and
sister trying to find their way in life after the death of their
grandmother, the keeper of secrets and last custodian of the knowledge of a
whole language group. After her death, David is the only person left alive
that can speak his mother’s tongue.

Mother's Tongue will play from 29 October - 20 November 2010 at YY Theatre
Space, 65 Murray Street, Perth.

kind regards,
Resource Network for Linguistic Diversity
