AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Coral Reith, a middle aged woman, suddenly finds herself in an 'empty nest' after years of being defined by her duties as mother and wife. Coral's attempts to find kindred spirits and meaningful community all lead to dead ends, until ultimately she takes solace in 'the nearly machines' of local gaming halls. Meanwhile, her home town itself is experiencing a mysterious proliferation as it's overrun by ants and spectacular ant mounds. The play is a bizarre comedy designed to involve community members and audience in the performance. It was written for 5 actors plus a chorus of community members, but has a variable cast with 13 main roles plus chorus. - from The Australian Script Centre website
