Glenn Shea is a descendant of the Ngarrindjeri people, around the mouth of the Murray River in South Australia.

Glenn was the first Aboriginal actor to graduate from NIDA, and is now a respected actor and playwright. He has appeared in many leading theatre productions, films and TV series including Redfern Now and East of Everything, and his celebrated play, 3 Magpies Perched in a Tree, is described as an ‘extraordinary, vivid and unorthodox look at life on the streets of today’s Aboriginal youth.’

Glenn created an educational resource called The Storyteller Boardgame, which provides knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal people, society and culture from a generic and non-political perspective.
