2 Male 1 Female

Every year, a tiny group of unique individuals give up a regular lifestyle to begin an extraordinary undertaking

Banding together, they are recruited to bring relief to the world's trouble spots

Delivering humanitarian or medical aid, they offer hope to those living on the edge of human tolerance

Well, at least, that's what they signed up for ...

Damien Millar explores the intentions, adversities and fears of Australians on the front line

Revealing personal stories with a compassionate eye and a gallows humour, he offers a compelling, practical perspective on international aid

The Modern International Dead is 'witness theatre' at its most potent the insiders' view on global change today, and the world we hope for tomorrow

" ... funny, irreverent, passionate and provocative" ~ Mark Hopkins, SMH

"Millar's tapestry of reportage is engrossing, suspenseful and irreverently humorous" ~ Sun Herald

Winner of the 2008 Sydney Theatre Award for Best New Australian Work
