Deadly Eh?!

by Sue Rider

Jordan begins to question his identity when he finds out who his father was.



Sue Rider‘s Deadly Eh?! was developed with students from Brisbane’s Aboriginal Centre for the Performing Arts (ACPA) for Artslink Queensland as a touring production.


How does a teenager accept or acknowledge their Aboriginal identity when it has been hidden for so long? Jordan has a white Mum and an Aboriginal Dad. Jordan wants to make a mark on the world, but which world? Is it possible to navigate a path between two cultures and still remain true to yourself? Or is there another way altogether – that’d be real deadly, eh?!


Deadly Eh?! was first produced by Artslink Queensland as a tour of regional
Queensland. First performance on 15 July 2013 at Alexandra Hills State High
School, Alexandra Hills, Queensland, Australia.
