“There are three things that have divided this nation right down the center. Conscription, Whitlam and Lindy Chamberlain.” Filled with humour and heartbreak, this stunning new work by award-winning playwright Alana Valentine explores the public’s relationship with one of 20th Century Australia’s most iconic figures.

The court case captivated a nation. A mother accused of murdering her child, her claim — that the baby was taken by a dingo — denied and discredited by zealous police and a flawed legal system.
