A strange sight greets those gathered on the shore of Gadigal land. Ships of a type and size never seen before. Where are they from? Who and what do they carry? Should they be welcomed – or should they be wary? Famed for her plays Stolen and Rainbow’s End, Muruwari playwright Jane Harrison turns her attention to that pivotal moment when the First Fleet dropped anchor. The Visitors is a powerful, imaginative response to the beginnings of modern Australia.
Funny, informative, sombre, real, imagined and very enjoyable, I would encourage everyone to see it.
