Playwright Caleb Lewis introduces his audience to Maggie Stone, the hard-hearted face of Australia’s belligerents.
She’s a rude, prickly, fifty-something small loans officer who doesn’t owe the world a thing.
That is until she finds her fate unexpectedly intertwined with that of the Deng Family.
After refusing the plea for an $800 loan, Maggie learns of the consequences that follow, leaving her indebted to a family left behind.
Enter a ruthless creditor, Leo Hermes, demanding an impossible payment from a family already drowning in debt.
Maggie learns first-hand the politics of charity, for even favours require gratitude, investment requires returns and an outstanding debt awaits satisfaction.Sandra Eldridge directs this Sydney premiere.
