Thursday's Child is Tin, born on a Thursday and like the old nursery rhyme, has far to go.

A strange and lonely child who digs, his wanderings take him underneath the earth into the subterranean tunnels that he's pre-destined to roam.

Told by his sister Harper Flute, it is a story of an Australian farming family's strength as they battle their way through the great depression of the 1930's.

A surreal and epic piece of theatre that explores the themes of memory, fate, family camaraderie and the spirit of determination in a time of great change.

Thursday's Child is an engaging and deeply moving story that captures the heart and imagination.

(3 male, 3 female).
