AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A single shot rings out through the bush, startling the crows and echoing through the landscape.

'In a wooden hut in a clearing, a woman waits for her husband to return from a journey.' Open Shot', Schulz's first radio play, is 'set in Australia's early colonial days, he explores the effects of isolation and loneliness, and how a single act can reverberate through the lives of others just like the shot reverberates through the bush.'
