A comic tragedy about the human need to belong and call a place home. Set in a dilapidated NT cattle station two displaced people battle to call it their own.

Alma lives on a spectacular but debt-ridden cattle station somewhere in the middle of nowhere. The cattle are long gone and no income is coming in but she refuses to give up her home. Out of the blue a wealthy stranger appears bearing gifts. Alma spies a plan of salvation. Hope is on the horizon and prosperity is in the air … or is a thunderous storm of tumult rolling her way?

Hilarity and tragedy sweep the stage as these beguiling and feisty characters battle for security in their unstable world.

Don’t miss the triumphant return of this play to the Brown’s Mart stage, written by Kate Wyvill (Marbles, The Wardrobe) with dramaturgy by multi award-winning stage and screenwriter, Katherine Thomson (Diving for Pearls, House of Hancock, Schapelle)

I had travelled all the way from the UK to see this play and I wasn’t disappointed. Such a powerful story – writing is amazing. Melissa portrayed Alma so well, strong feisty lady with soul. Loved it! – Molvia Maddox 2016

Absolutely loved this play, so close to home, meant so much…thank you Kate for writing this amazing play. – Patti Izod 2016
