Read full description of the books:
This became an amazing stage production, which I ended up designing for, so it does hold a certain place in my heart, so I finally decided to read the book on which it was based.
Doomed from the start. I love things like this. It's a real slice of what makes Australia so freekin wild and fearless. In a penal colony a play is being rehearsed. Directed by the constabulary, staring inmates, the star, slated to be hung, what could possibly go right?
No one really wants to be there, everyone wants to escape this island they've been shipped to, and subsequently forgotten. So why not " Put on a play?" It's the absurdity of it all that makes it so crazy, wonderful, and sad. The characters range from distasteful and brutish to pathetic and repulsive, and some are even loveable, in a weird way.
But it takes a certain type of reader to appreciate this type of story. Not everyone will " get it".
