Set in a small isolated outback town, this moving and gutsy play is a confronting look at the impact of a young man’s suicide on the lives of the family and friends that are left behind. The work was developed over two years with the Mosman Park Arts Foundation along with collaboration from health professionals to help address the issue of youth suicide in Australia.
