A touring theatre work and social history project about several hundred Aboriginal people medically incarcerated on Bernier and Dorre islands in the early 1900's in Western Australia, Lock Hospital brings to light a silent episode of Australia's history. The play, developed by an Indigenous creative team, is a tribute to the strength and integrity of the Malgana and Yinggarda Aboriginal communities.
