The 7 Stages of Grieving holds a mirror up to America by sharing Australia’s Aboriginal people’s fight for equality and recognition. Poignant stories are shared that are politically relevant, culturally profound, funny, and devastatingly sad. Most importantly, the play opens a dialogue about the issues which separate and unite Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. Their story is your story.

United Stages acknowledges the Elders past and present of the Guugu Yimithirr Nation of the Cape York region of Queensland, the home of Thitharr Warra actor Chenoa Deemal. We extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people whose stories we share.
