Abstract

'As Australia moves into a new millennium, two couples in their thirties wrestle with their changing relationships and their relationship with the Land. Milo, a well-meaning if misguided dreamer, battles to cope with reality whilst his partner Di, a committed social reformer, battles with the conflicting demands of relationship and career. Toby, a fourth generation farmer, struggles with the life in the 21st century whilst his wife, Peg, contemplates her future as a mother and wife. The play examines the evolving relationship in Australia between the City and the Bush and explodes a few inherent myths.' (RGM Associates website, http://www.rgm.com.au/nm_lit.html)
