 "Big sky. Big river. Big betrayal. Big secrets exposed as the river recedes. Thomas Murray is a lot of play for your money....Chris Bendall's direction is imaginative, fluent in its handling of the play's temporal shifts and notably physical. Designer Dann Barber's wooden ramp of a stage has all  kinds of surprises built into it. Kingsley Reeve's sound design twangs and shimmers" Syndey Morning Herald, Jason Blake

 

"Reg Cribb is a writer whose imagination catches fire when presented with the everyday dframas and dreams of 'ordinary' Australians... The play is a rich exploration of character and story. The language crackles with humour, bitterness and authenticity. Stage Noise, Diana Simmonds
