Thirty years after the release of Roach’s two-time ARIA Award-winning debut album Charcoal Lane, Tell Me Why is an account of resilience, strength of spirit, and love. 

Through stories of the iconic songwriter and activist’s life, the show presents an intimate, and often confronting musical journey.

The show will reflect Roach’s story from being a ‘stolen child’ and teenage alcoholic to lover, father, musical icon, social advocate and First Nations leader. 

Roach’s story shows how his odyssey through love and heartbreak, family and community, survival and renewal is a testament to the healing power of music. 

People can book tickets to the Horsham show online at or by calling the town hall box office on 5382 9555.
