“In his timely and dark new play, set in the 1800’s fictional town of Billy Creek, a devoted Anglican family discover their eldest daughter has fallen in love with the ‘wrong’ man – an Aboriginal. Their piety is tested, and the boundaries of love challenge their hope of survival.”
This play, by Queensland playwright Ruth Tuxworth, explored radical love and racial tensions with poetic drama. It was read by a professional cast and open to the public. Aboriginal Christian leader/story advisor Brooke Prentis moderated the Q&A session which followed the reading.
