Traditions rub up against change in this new Australian play about a family gathered on a tiny island in the Bass Strait for the mutton bird harvest

This new play by Tasmanian Nathan Maynard draws on his history to create an intergenerational portrait of one family gathered together for the annual mutton bird harvest. Trevor Jamieson (The Secret River) will star, alongside an all-Indigenous cast, directed by Isaac Drandic. 

The Season premiered at Sydney Festival in January 2017, and has since then shown at Hobart's Ten Days on the Island and Adelaide Festival.
