Begotten

Begotten

by

A sceptic. A paranoiac. A criminal. A migrant. A hostage.

Minola Theatre presents BEGOTTEN, a five-part audio drama by award-winning playwright Bianca Butler Reynolds. Join us each week as we meet five generations of women: Alice, Eileen, Clea, Hazel and Laoise. Hear a century of their stories, encompassing grief, war, sanity, loss and revenge. Listen as they grapple with powerful questions about heredity, and what is passed down family lines. Are we doomed to make the same mistakes our parents did? Can we heal a wound that is generations old? How much do the secrets of the past haunt us in the present?

Stage Whispers calls BEGOTTEN “a fascinating tapestry” with “superb sound design” and “visual images that sing”. Audiences praise it as “emotional”, “raw”, “powerful”, “spellbinding” and “heart touching”. Listen each week wherever you get your podcasts, or download the full drama on demand from minolatheatre.com.au/begotten.
