A.B. Faceys A Fortunate Life

Past Event

Goldfields Arts Centre presents a THEATRE 180 & CinemaStage production of A.B. Facey’s A Fortunate Life.

A striking collaboration between artists of stage and screen honours the trials and triumphs of extraordinary everyman A.B. Facey, whose award-winning Australian classic autobiography, 'A Fortunate Life', has been adapted for theatrical presentation by THEATRE 180 and CinemaStage.

‘A Fortunate Life’ embraces themes that are intrinsic to our history and culture as modern Australians - resilience, fortitude, hope and integrity, bringing the beloved bushland to the big screen and placing humanity centre-stage.

As A.B. Facey's extraordinary story unfolds, audio-visual projections and live actors evoke distinct natural environments, definitive historical events, and the daily grind of farmers, settlers, and city dwellers throughout 20th-century Western Australia.

With three actors playing over 89 characters, this ground-breaking theatrical production for all ages explores an incredible true story connecting us with generations past and present through insights from Facey's experiences as a bushman, sportsman, railway ganger, a World War 1 soldier, and a 20th-century family man. This is a unique opportunity to immerse in modern history and experience the combined impact of live theatre and cinema.
