Uncle Jack Charles is an Australian legend: veteran actor, musician, Koori elder, activist and, until recently, heroin addict and cat burglar.

This is a show about his life – told by him. From Stolen Generation to Koori theatre in the 70s, from film sets to Her Majesty’s prisons, Jack Charles V The Crown runs the gamut of a life lived to its utmost.

Charles’ unswerving optimism transforms this tale of addiction, crime and doing time into a kind of vagabond’s progress – a map of the traps of dispossession and a guide to reaching the age of grey-haired wisdom. Accompanied by a three-piece band, this one man show is a theatrical delight and a celebration of one of the country’s near forgotten treasures, brought to us by the oldest Indigenous theatre company in Australia.“Steeped in decades of our history social, political, theatrical), surprisingly upbeat… A warmhearted, very entertaining evening.” Sydney Morning Herald
