Tall Man

The play made us cringe and laugh, it challenged a room to acknowledge it’s story.” Resident, Mt Morgan.

Synopsis

Wayne lives alone, under the radar in the hills of an old gold mining town. When Wayne’s estranged daughter Billie turns up desperate for help, he’s forced to unearth a past and a promise he buried years ago.

This gripping fifty-minute play is a bleak yet beautiful evocation of our complex relationship to land, history, wealth and our most precious resource, family.

Tall Man was originally commissioned by Creative Regions as part of a larger work, Tales of the Underground which toured central Queensland in June, 2012.

Cast: 2 (1M/1F)
