Letters To Lindy

A Mother's Loss - A Nation's Obsession

 

 

 

Filled with humour and heartbreak, this stunning work by award-winning playwright Alana Valentine (Parramatta Girls) explores the public’s relationship with one of 20th Century Australia’s most iconic figures. The story captivated a nation. A mother accused of murdering her child, her claim – that the baby was taken by a dingo – denied and discredited by zealous police and a flawed legal system. The media circus, the rumours, the mob mentality, and a nation’s prejudices laid bare.

Over three decades, from baby Azaria’s death to the final coroner’s report, the public wrote more than 20,000 letters to Lindy Chamberlain. From sympathy to abuse, letters from children and letters from those who have lost a child, these letters traverse the gamut of human response to Lindy’s story. Letters to Lindy draws on this correspondence.
