Wil, a once desperate alcoholic, returns to Broome with a radical plan to break the cycle of booze, madness, crime and incarceration that he was once caught up in. Claudia, a local indigenous woman who runs the Centre, is sceptical of outsiders with big ideas, but the guilt of her own past causes her to take a chance on this passionate stranger.
The play moves between one chaotic night in the centre and a long past tragic incident at the prison wall. As the usual suspects stagger into the stifling heat of the centre, what follows is a gradual revealing of Wil’s unorthodox and terrifying method. He has a much deeper connection to the town and its past than anyone could have imagined, including himself.
Staring Jack Charles, Mark Coles Smith, Jim Daly, Julie Forsyth, Margaret Harvey, Alex Menglet and Mark Wilson
