INVITATION - The Cakeman by Robert J Merritt 40th Anniversary play reading

First performed by the Black Theatre at the Black Theatre Arts and Culture Centre, Sydney, on 12th January 1975, Robert J. Merritt’s The Cake Man is a powerful and poignant Australian story about mission life in Cowra, during the Aboriginal protection era. It is a moving portrayal of Aboriginal family life set against the harsh realities of a paternalistic social and political doctrine
