Presented by Albany Entertainment Centre

One of the most powerful and highly anticipated Australian stories ever told comes to the stage.

Not many have lived as many lives as Archie Roach – from stolen child, teenage alcoholic, seeker, lover, father, musical and lyrical genius, to social advocate and First Nations leader – but it took almost a lifetime to find who he really was.

Tell Me Why is a compelling account of resilience and the strength of spirit to overcome trauma whilst searching for a sense of belonging– and of a great love story.

In this intimate, moving and often confronting journey, Roach’s story is an extraordinary odyssey through love and heartbreak, family and community, survival and renewal – and testament to the healing power of music.

It is also about his struggle to find the will to keep living following a debilitating stroke, lung cancer and the sudden death of his life partner of 38 years, Ruby Hunter – a highly acclaimed singer songwriter in her own right.

Roach voices the joy, pain and hope he found on his path through song to become the legendary singer-songwriter and storyteller that he is today – beloved and respected by fans worldwide.
