Backstories is a multi-sited storytelling festival located in backyards across Perth and regional Western Australia. In 2021, Backstories featured locations in Margaret River, South Fremantle, Midland, Quinns Rocks and more.
Backstories 2021 was made possible with funding from Lotterywest, Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries and the Centre for Stories Founders Circle.
This story was collected at our Inglewood backyard. It features Prunella Riddle. Just before the pandemic hit, Prunella took a trip around Japan with her son. She realised that just as he was changing, so was she.
