AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Second to None is a powerful and poetic piece of theatre, based on historical events that occurred in the Kaurna Lands of Adelaide. The play based at four sites with viewers taking a bus between the sites. It starts at the Workers Club in Port Adelaide where viewers were invited to seek investment within the Port Adelaide area by three real estate agents. Second to None is factual, truthful and healing. Although events and horrifying policies such as assimilation policy have occurred within Australia, once again indigenous Australians showed a strength and compassion which is Second to None.' (Review by Julie Spence)
