Jack Charles V the Crown

Date: 7 Jul 2020

Uncle Jack Charles is an Australian legend: veteran actor, musician, Koori elder and activist.

But for a good portion of his 74 years he has also been an addict, a thief and a regular in Victoria’s prisons.

From Stolen Generation to Koori theatre in the 1970s, from film sets to Her Majesty’s prisons, Jack Charles V The Crown runs the gamut of a life lived to its utmost.

Charles’ unswerving optimism transforms this tale of addiction, crime and doing time into a kind of vagabond’s progress – a map of the traps of dispossession and a guide to reaching the age of grey-haired wisdom.

Take it from a man who has gained much insight through his travails: you’re never too far-gone to turn it around – and it’s never too late for an apology.
