Description Dorothy Hewett's play, commissioned to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Western Australia.
Lyrical celebration with music set in West Australian country town during First World War. Down in the wheat-belt town of Mukinupin, east of the rabbit-proof fence, the shopkeeper's daughter Polly is in love with young Jack Tuesday. Her parents disapprove, but in this friendly community of battlers, you feel that love will overcome all. Still, every town has its dark side and Mukinupin keeps hers well-hidden.
