Winner of the prestigious Patrick White Award, Windmill Baby is an enthralling show about an aging Aboriginal woman named Maymay, who returns briefly to the cattle station where she lived years ago in order to take care of some “unfinished business.” With warmth, wit, and great heart she tells a story of many layers: Of Black Australians in the service of White Australia. Of unexpected romance and sudden ruination. Of overcoming heartbreak and —most wonderfully of all—of abiding love.
Featuring Linda Kennedy, winner of the 2008 Missouri Arts Award for Individual Artist, with live music by Farshid Soltanshahi. Directed by Philip Boehm. Set by Patrick Huber. Costumes by Keaton Treece. Lighting by Tony Anselmo. Props by Claudia Mink Horn.
