Newcomers to Bay Theatre Players’ lighting and sound booth, Lyn Benn and Julian Crosby, in operation for Forget Me Not. ONE of the comments from an audience member at Bay Theatre Players’ current production, Forget Me Not,was “Ineeded to see something like that and I feel better for it”.

The show, which officially opened last Friday, is certainly a sad story, but says director, Jenny Kohlhagen, “one that needs to be told”.

In answer to the question, “why did I choose this play?”she said, “I enjoy theatre that is thought provoking, and Forget Me Notsets us to thinking about the societies in which we live and the decisions our governments and administrators, and at times our administrators alone, make on behalf of the citizens they serve”.

“Tales such as these, based on multiple real-life stories, quite rightly encourage us to question the motivations and behaviours of institutions that we blindly accept will do the right thing by those amongst us who are most vulnerable.”

Forget Me Nottells the story of Gerry who was part of a British Government child migration scheme which sent more than 3000 British children to Australia with a promise of warmth, fresh air, abundant food and opportunity.

Instead they arrived to deprived institutions where neglect and abuse were the norm.

Jenny remembers a family friend who used to talk about his time on a “farm school”.

She says, “how I wish I could go back through time and ask him more about his early years”.

“When he was still alive, I was, along with most people my age, ignorant of the child migration scheme.

“I was stunned to discover that the last child migrant arrived in Australia as recently as 1970.”

In 2010 the UK and Australia made a formal apology to the children.

Then British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, observed that from the 1920s to the 1960s 150,000 children were torn from their families and sent thousands of miles from home on the promise of a better life.

He noted that an Australian Royal Commission had taken evidence of serious abuse of children both in Australia and in residential homes within the UK prior to being sent to the other side of the world.

He added: “this confirms the validity of the apology and warns us to be ever vigilant in safeguarding vulnerable children”.

Jenny says to her audiences: “Enjoy. And reflect a while upon what we human beings are capable of doing to the children who place their trust in us”.

The game was a torrid affair from the first ball upwith the Demons throwing Alex Erlandson into theruck and parking Joel Walsh at the spearhead, andboth these moves brought a modicum of success asthe former was leaping over Tiger ruckman ArnoldKirby.

The Tigers, however, were well and truly primed foraction and their running brigade were a little morecomposed early, particularly in the defensive half.

Jamie Nicholas led the back six with some verypositive play under pressure for the Woorinen Tigers,while Kyle Steicke continued his great defensivework from last week.

That great drive from the back gave the Tigerrunners many opportunities to attack managing toscore in a quarter where goal opportunities were arare commodity.

At the first break they enjoyed an eight-point bufferand that set up the next two terms for a desperatestruggle where tackling and turnovers became thenorm.

The long break saw the margin still eight points infavour of the visitors but in total only three majorshad been registered for the second term, an indicationof the intensity of the action.

The third term delivered a little more of the samebut the tackling and turn overs continued to the detrimentof the game as a spectacle but the big crowdhung in waiting for something to happen.

And something did happen.

The Tigers still had the run for which they arerenowned and, true to their reputation as strongfi nishers, scored a very creditable three goals to nil inthe final term.
