It’s Ladies Day at the Broome races and the divinely beautiful Mike is the
toast of the track. But amongst the froth and festivity, a brutal act of
violence reminds us that life is not just all swishy hemlines, debonair gents
and fascinators galore.
Alana Valentine is one of Australia’s best playwrights. Known for her
incredibly successful verbatim works, she takes her interviews and research
with individuals and communities, and mixes them with a healthy dose of drama.
The result is powerful, thought-provoking theatre in which the voices of her
protagonists ring absolutely true.
Alana spent months interviewing the gay community of Broome to create a play
that asks questions about tolerance, isolation, love, hope and the right to
have your story told.
