Rush!: A Musical in Two Acts
Sarah and Duncan McKenzie arrive in the 'new country' as Jackie O'Fea brings news of gold discoveries. Leaving his family for the diggings, Duncan seizes his chance for freedom from the slavery of the 19th century working class life, but his dreams are dashed as tragedy strikes. Duncan's close friend Nathan Hall is drowned in a massive flood and Jackie O'Fea, a trusted friend, shows his true colours. The widow Millie Hall is assaulted by O'Fea and with the threat of harm to her baby she is powerless. Murder, hangings, and rough frontier justice will follow.
