On Friday 10 March, York Town Hall will host the highly successful and unique account of the beloved West Australian true story A Fortunate Life by A.B. Facey.

This award-winning live performance, blended with a cinematic experience, has already toured extensively throughout the Perth metropolitan area and will now travel to new WA towns. York is the first stop on this regional WA CircuitWest tour.

The Shire of York is delighted to be able to offer this show at a subsidised ticket fee of $10 (plus booking fee).   Tickets are available via EVENTBRITE or at the York Visitors Centre. 

A.B. Facey's novel has been adapted specifically for a unique production that combines live performance and immersive audiovisual projections evoking the pioneering spirit of the bush, and the challenges and triumphs of country life through two world wars and their aftermath. This is a story that connects us with generations past and present through insights from Albert Facey’s experiences as a child, bushman, sportsman, railway ganger, a World War 1 soldier, and a 20th-century family man. Technology and live theatre intersect, inviting audiences to become immersed in modern history and a powerful Australian story.
