AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Wrong Skin presents a tragic story of forbidden love and plays out amongst the sweeping red dirt and ghostly saltbush trees of remote New South Wales. Wrong Skin delves into an intricate world of Aboriginal kinship, gripped violently with the constraints of religion and controlled by dark malevolent spirits. Based on the ancient Greek tragedy Oedipus Rex, and fused with Aboriginal culture and history, Wrong Skin will plunge you into a haunting and evocative place, dripping with a history buried deep beneath sinister shadows.'
