So much thought provoking detail in such a compact play. Inspirational and creatively motivating. I would love to see this on stage as a follow up. Brilliant! Absolutely Brilliant! All the reviews and recommendations that raved about this play and I am still blown away. Possibly one of the best Australian texts I've ever read.

Trigger warning: rape scene

Thought provoking and heart wrenching. There were some real moment in here where themes were so poignant that I felt a twist in my own gut. This is a real look at how women and Aboriginal Australians were treated and includes some graphic and brutal scenes. Sensational.

A re-imagining of The Drover's Wife. Brutal.
