Jack is an actor, musician, potter and gifted performer but in his nearly 70 years he has also been homeless, a heroin addict, a thief and a regular in Victoria’s prisons. A member of the Stolen Generation Jack has spent his life in between acting gigs, caught in the addiction/crime/doing time cycle.

Today–no longer caught in the cycle–he lives to tell the extraordinary tale. Jack’s constant and unswerving optimism, his generosity of spirit and his humanity shine through in this powerful one man show, unraveling the layers of this living legend’s colourful past. JACK CHARLES V THE CROWN is a theatre experience full of pathos and resolve, shining a spotlight on the once-colourful life of Australia’s near forgotten treasures.
