Tasmania, now. Boyd’s got enough on his plate between his responsibilities to land and people. 

But something’s happening. Every year more and more folk are claiming to be palawa too. Folk no-one’s heard of until now, who haven’t been ‘round before. Are they legit? Or are they ‘tick-a-box’? Who decides? And how? 

If Boyd’s going to take everyone forward, they’re all going to have to go back, old Mob or new, into the island’s knotty past. And they might not like what they find there. 

This ground-breaking production comes to us from Belvoir St Theatre, directed by Queensland Theatre’s Artistic Associate, Isaac Drandic. It’s an ambitious conversation about identity and history, shared with humour and generosity by pakana playwright.

Presented by Queensland Theatre
