Year 11 - English Text - Comparison - Shifting Heart/Growing Up Asian Australia: Shifting Heart
The universal theme of a persecuted minority is here applied to the sufferings of an Italian immigrant family settling in a resentful Melbourne suburb. What the critics say: This Australian play won a prize in The Observer Play Competition and it is easy to see why. For it is a strong play set in strong words; and strongly played, it leaves a strong imprint on the imagination. -The Observer A piece of theatre which is exciting, funny and intensely moving. -Daily Herald Has irresistible warmth and a compelling sincerity that makes it an experience not to be missed. -The Star A back-porch view of an immigrant family trying to sink their racial pride in a hostile suburb. -Daily Mail Something very near greatness. -Evening News
