Audio on ABC Radio



A short play, in verse and prose, set in the inner-Sydney suburb of Redfern.

A poetic impression of the suburb as it travels through one day, the narrative tells the tale of four residents, a non-indigenous woman whose bag is snatched, the drug-addled thief, an indigenous woman who is knocked over and injured on a pedestrian crossing as she returns home, and the policeman who deals with all of them.

A play about interconnectedness and the possibility of community.
