Brown’s Mart Theatre

Darwin’s first home for theatre and live performance


The Daly River Girl depicts writer Tessa Rose's personal story, starting from growing up with various non-indigenous foster families in Perth, Western Australia, an eternity away from her natural mother, family, and Country of Daly River, Northern Territory.

Her story speaks from the heart and openly expresses her pain, anger and joy.  We follow her journey from adolescence into womanhood, her first love, the cruelty of domestic violence, her resilience to overcome the many obstacles on her own.
