|Description||Deals with the fluctuating fortunes of the Dockerty family living in Redfern, Sydney, in the 1950s. Tom Dockerty is working class to his boots and a member of the Communist Party. His wife, Laurie, the former 'Belle of Bundaberg' has not coped so well with seven kids and inner city living and has taken to drinking heavily.
It is a "slice of life" play with Redfern itself an always intrusive element.
