Excerpts from an interview with Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton and playwright Alana Valentine about the play 'Letters to Lindy'.
Filled with warmth, humour and heartbreak, this new work explores our fascination with one of 20th Century Australia’s most iconic figures.
Over three decades, from baby Azaria’s death to the final coroner’s report, the public wrote more than 20,000 letters to Lindy Chamberlain. From sympathy to abuse, marriage proposals to death threats, letters from children, and letters from those who have lost a child, these letters traverse the gamut of human response to Lindy’s story.
'Letters to Lindy' draws on this correspondence, as well as extensive interviews with Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton herself, to create an enthralling, moving, and long overdue dialogue between Lindy and the nation.
Here, Lindy and Alana discuss the letters, and how 'Letters to Lindy' came to be written.
