Yanagai! Yanagai by Andrea James, is a play inspired by the history and courage of the Yorta Yorta people of Australia.
Yanagai! Yanagai! evokes a place where past, present and future exist as one. It is set in a mythical landscape on the banks of a mighty river, which the Yorta Yorta call Dhungula and white fullas call The Murray. A clan of storytellers gathers to invoke the beautiful place they once knew, to sing it into being. Some are stories worth remembering, others are told so they may never happen again. Children and elders, spirits and ghosts, dingoes and min-min lights are threaded together in tales of colonial law, a people and their land.
