A family property is suddenly zoned as part of a regional housing estate to accommodate an ever-increasing urban sprawl.
At this moment of shifting economies, and loyalties, Hunter returns from a seven-year absence.
Finding his boyhood house boarded up and his mother in aged care, Hunter goes in search of answers. And he starts with his brother Gordon.
Presented by theatre makers Company of Rogues, Felix Nobis’ play is a bush ballad for contemporary life, written in vernacular verse reminiscent of the poetic tradition of Banjo Patterson.
Here, old Australia meets new Australia. A country cop comes to terms with rapid social change, a backyard is less important than extra bedrooms, and technology has the potential to unearth old family secrets. For Hunter and Gordon, sibling rivalry and childhood nostalgia collide with unexpected consequences.
Erica Lovell directs a production featuring Jason Glover, Tom Harwood, Stan Kouros, Jeannie Gee and Amelia Robertson-Cuninghame.
