Perth-based Indigenous theatre company Yirra Yaakin is coming to the Pilbara this week to present Good Lovin', an original commission by the WA Health Department, written by Palyku playwright David Milroy.
The play will be presented for free to schools and communities in the Pilbara region from 20-23 September 2011.
David Milroy is an award-winning playwright (Waltzing the Wilarra, Windmill Baby), and has written Good Lovin' to promote positive lifestyle choices.
The Good Lovin' performance will be followed by a theatre and health workshop to encourage and support young people to make choices about what’s right for them by using hip hop and humour.
The performance and workshop program of Good Lovin' will visit schools and local communities in Karratha on 20 September, Roebourne on 22 September, and Onslow on 23 September.
