Counting and Cracking

About

On the banks of a suburban Sydney river, Radha and her son Siddhartha release the ashes of Radha's mother – their final connection to the past, to Sri Lanka and its struggles. Now they are free to embrace their lives in Australia. But a phone call from Colombo brings the past spinning back to life, and we're plunged into an epic story of love and political strife, of home and exile, of parents and children. Featuring a world-class cast of 19 performers hailing from six different countries, Counting and Cracking follows the journey of one Sri Lankan Australian family over four generations, from 1956 to 2004. In the course of telling this family's epic story of break up and reunion, the narrative also tells the tale of two countries: Sri Lanka post-independence and Australia as an immigrant nation. The Rep is thrilled to be bringing this multi-award winning play to Birmingham, presented by Birmingham 2022 Festival.
