At What Cost?

Date: 15 Oct 2021

Tasmania, now.

Boyd’s got enough on his plate between keeping a young family together and his responsibilities to land and people.

But something’s happening. Every year more and more folk are claiming to be Palawa, too. Folk no-one’s heard of until now, who haven’t been ‘round before. Are they legit? Or are they ‘tick-a-box’?

Who decides?

And how?

If Boyd’s going to take everyone forward, they’re all going to have to go back, old mob or new, into the island’s knotty past. And they might not like what they find there.

At What Cost? is a new and provocative play from Palawa playwright Nathan Maynard (The Season). Isaac Drandic directs Luke Carroll, Sandy Greenwood and Alex Malone.
