It’s time for them to be heard
In their eponymous 2006 book, Dr Neerosh Mudaly and Professor Chris Goddard gave voice to those historically silenced in discussions about child abuse, neglect and the systems designed to protect them- children.  What emerged was raw, insightful and confronting.  Most importantly, what emerged was a story that needed to be told.
The Truth is Longer than a Lie is inspired by the experiences of these children.  Written by award-winning Australian playwright Kieran Carroll, the play follows two teenagers from two very different families as they break their silence about child abuse and find traces of hope in the system and each other.
