The story offers an unflinching journey into Australia's dark history, following two families divided by culture and land. When William Thornhill, a convict from the slums in London, arrives in New South Wales, he discovers that the new world offers something he never thought he could have: a place to call his own. In this new production from Sydney Theatre Company, an ensemble cast of 22 perform.
