Venue Riverside Theatre
Dates 24 November - 28 November 2009

Gus was the best safety officer the mining camp has seen yet he died in a cyclone in a place he shouldn’t have been. Why was he there? What are his work mates at the camp hiding? These are the questions the company want answered when they send their investigator to the remote Pilbra railway construction camp.

A classic whodunit play that keeps you on the edge of your seat as conflicting memories of the small team of employees, are confronted by “the company man” superbly played by Darren Gilshennan. Empty lives are laid bare and a tangled web of guilty secrets begins to unravel.

From Sue Smith, the writer of TV hit series Bastard Boys and Brides of Christ, comes this gripping, darkly humorous, contemporary tale of deception and the price of opportunism. If you love a mystery, don’t miss this play.

“classic whodunit style” SMH

“well-crafted, witty in a nicely savage way” The Australian

“a beautiful play.”

“Darren Gilshenan is shudder-makingly fine in the role” Diana Simmonds, Stage Noise

Cast includes
Blazey Best, Ivan Donato, Darren Gilshenan, Peter Kowitz, Josh McConville and Sandy Winton
