"Including a Treehouse performance in school welling programs gives a deeper understanding of diversity, including, and resilience."
Lillian Joseph, Deputy Principal (Wellbeing) at Holroyd High School

"Attending a Treehouse production makes students from non-refugee backgrounds reflect and think about refugee stereotypes and the people behind these images. Never had a student not affected by listening to another student tell their story."
Jeff Lovett, Deputy Principal at Mount Annan High School

Treehouse Theatre presents Refugee Diaries.

Witness the transformative power of storytelling at the latest Treehouse production Refugee Diaries. In this gripping 90-minute performance, young refugees from Afghanistan, Syria, and Iraq, who are starting anew in Australia, share their remarkable journeys. This production is the culmination of three months of intensive trauma recovery work, and the stories it presents will take you on an emotional rollercoaster.

Refugee Diaries weaves tales that range from the hilariously heart-warming to the profoundly gut-wrenching. Audiences will gain a deep understanding of the refugee experience like never before. Suitable for school groups spanning from year 7 to 12 and adults alike, this performance offers a unique educational opportunity. It serves as excellent professional development for school staff and community workers through an introduction to the lived experience of young refugees.

Join us as we witness the resilience of young refugees, who, despite facing unimaginable challenges, have the strength to not only survive but thrive. Don't miss Refugee Diaries, a thought-provoking and eye-opening experience that will leave a lasting impact.
