Mr Takahashi and Other Falling Secrets

Darwin 1942 – WWII: A town collapses under the threat of invasion as bombshells drop on Northern Australia. Mothers and daughters, sisters, friends and entire cultures are torn apart by the secrets that start to fall. Is Mr Takahashi to blame?

This is a play about the bombing of northern Australia and is presented as part of the 75th anniversary of that event. Japan unleashed a wave of attacks on the north, including Cairns and Townsville with particularly devastating effects on Darwin, with three times as many bombs as were dropped on Pearl Harbour. Mr Takahashi examines the home front at this time, focussing upon the lives of multicultural and Indigenous women who contributed to the war effort, making, in some cases, the ultimate sacrifice.
