About This Show

In 1913, Daisy Bates abandoned her family and all the comforts of civilization, pitched a tent in the Australian outback and lived there with the Aborigines for 30 years. The Fountain Theatre presents the West Coast premiere of Daisy in the Dreamtime by Lynne Kaufman, the true story of the first white woman to live among the Aborigines and enter the Dreamtime. Simon Levy directs.

Always dressed in Edwardian clothes, the Irish-born Daisy Mae Bates was nicknamed Kabbarli (grandmother) by “her people.” She studied and wrote down their customs, languages, rites and legends going back to the Dreamtime, waging a one woman war to keep them from the railway line and its “civilization.”
