The Murray family have been farming the land along the Darling River for five generations. For Tom Murray, it’s all he’s ever known. When his childhood friends Lucy and Billy reappear, deep friendships are tested, and secrets, long buried, are finally awakened – Tom must make the long journey down-stream to reconcile past wrongs and to fight for his wife.
From the multi-award winning screenwriter of Last Cab to Darwin comes a thrilling new Australian drama, brought to you by the producers and creative team behind Stones in his Pockets including Grant Cartwright in the title role (Barracuda).
“Reg Cribb is a writer whose imagination catches fire when presented with the everyday dramas and dreams of ordinary Australians… The play is a rich exploration of character and story. The language crackles with humour, bitterness and authenticity.”
– Stage Noise, Diana Simmonds
