inside the island

Theatreworks Selected Works program, 2009

Set in a farming district of western New South Wales in 1912, a matriarchal imitation of English society is destroyed by an outbreak of 'holy fire' madness from a wheat fungus.

Louis Nowra’s Inside the Island deals with the survivors of post-colonial Australia's legacies of class inequality, imperial racism, native dispossession and the cultural displacements of a multicultural migrant society.
