G’day, my name is Darren Coggan, producer and performer of War Stories – a salute in story and song to the ANZAC spirit. I just wanted to touch base with you and let you know how thrilled I am to have the opportunity to tour this special show.
Inspired by personal and exceptional stories of Australians at war, the stories are woven intro songs that provide an intimate perspective of the tales that have helped shape our nation.
War Stories takes you on an insightful journey into the lives of the Australians behind the lines. We reminisce about the generation of women who stayed at home and kept the country running. We celebrate the mate-ship, humour and courage in the Gallipoli trenches, and we honour our indigenous diggers, a story rarely told.
We will be hitting the road soon and I look forward to keeping you all up to date on our journey around Australia.
