AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Twenty-eight-year-old Billie tracks down her father, Wayne, an ex criminal living under the radar in a shack out on the minefields. Billie and her boyfriend are fleeing drug barons who will kill them unless they return the drug money they loaned and now don't have. Billie visits her father in the desperate hope that Wayne has kept the "stash" from his last job, a stolen inheritance he promised to his young daughter a decade ago. However Wayne, brain injured and half mad from a car accident while fleeing police, can't remember the past or the promise he buried years ago.

'Tall Man' is a compelling drama revealing the fractured bond between a disillusioned daughter and a guilt-ridden father. Ultimately it is a play about heritage and redemption. It is a story that affirms the strength of family, the power of forgiveness and the hope of the future. It is also a haunting yet healing hymn to the land and its eternal resilience.' (Publisher's blurb)
