AbstractHistoryArchive Description

“You’d rather they hadn’t been here, when we arrived. You’d rather they’d perished, leaving you in peace, picking through their remains. So you could have made up your own story about who they were, how they lived."

'An ancient civilization is discovered in a forest. But why are there only four of them? And what can they teach us about how to live in a dying world, before they go? Hinterland is a breathtaking new play about humanity, language and the cost of intervention by Jane Bodie, former Head of Playwriting at NIDA and current Griffin Theatre Company Associate Artist.
