Summary
  • Kevin Gilbert was a playwright, artist, poet and activist. His work was by turns comic, humanitarian and deeply spiritual - but always had a hard political edge. In 1957 he was sentenced to life for murder, and spent almost 15 years in jail. While in jail in 1968, he wrote The Cherry Pickers, the first written Aboriginal play. It was performed once in Melbourne in 1971, but true to his beliefs, Gilbert refused to let it be staged professionally until it could be done by an all-Aboriginal cast. That finally happened in 1994, a year after his death.
