Long Tan brings together a cast of 12 South Australian actors in an immersive audio-theatre production that will parachute audiences into the soldiers’ experience.

Long Tan

By Verity Laughton

Presented by Brink Productions in association with Adelaide Festival Centre and State Theatre Company


In August, 1966, 108 Australian soldiers of D Company 6RAR clashed with 2,500 North Vietnamese troops.

This is their story. Long Tan is a deeply immersive audio-theatre production that parachutes you into the soldiers’ experience – gunfire, mortar fire, pounding rain – orchestrated with sonic intensity. Adelaide’s acclaimed Brink Productions (When the Rain Stops Falling) creates this theatrical event by award-winning playwright Verity Laughton.

Composed from interviews with surviving Australian soldiers, and their families, as well as Vietnamese contributors, Long Tan is a meditation on our common humanity.
