SPARE Parts Puppet Theatre will bring an acclaimed tale of Australiana to Fremantle this weekend when it performs The Farmer’s Daughter.

Inspired by real life stories, The Farmer’s Daughter explores themes of survival and resilience while celebrating the lives of the people who live and work on the land.

The story is told through a CB radio conversation between a grandfather and a granddaughter, who share an unbreakable bond of connection to the land they love.

Artistic Director of Spare Parts Puppet Theatre Philip Mitchell said The Farmer’s Daughter was about finding the joy in life through adversity.

The Farmer’s Daughter takes us on an epic journey through the lives of a family – the good times and the bad – with the tears and the laughter,” he said.

“At its heart is a tribute to the human spirit that rises above adversity to find the joy in life, the humour in any situation, the beauty of the land, and the strength to go on.

“The emotional truth of this show will touch every member of your family and remain with you long after you leave the theatre.”

The season of The Farmer’s Daughter begins on June 30 and runs for three weeks.

The 50-minute performance is presented daily at 10am and 1pm, and is ideal for ages eight and over (suitable for those aged five and up).

There will also be special 6:30pm twilight performances throughout the season.
