Presented by WA Youth Theatre Company and Act-Belong-Commit

The Cockatoos is a tale of suburban secrets broken open to the light.

A mob of wild cockatoos has descended on the neighbourhood. For some they bring life and renewal – but for others, death and destruction. Olive and Mick dance tentatively towards reconciliation. Eight-year-old Tim spends a night alone in the park. These two stories rise in a spiraling sarabande of exclusion and belonging.

From the short story by Nobel laureate Patrick White, adapted for the stage and directed by Andrew Hale, The Cockatoos is a quintessentially Australian tale from a master of the metaphysical.

Award-winning WA Youth Theatre Company present a story of seared beauty starring 12 talented youth company members.
