I have been looking for thi play to come back to the stage. I saw it when it was performed in Adelaide, at Theatre 62, in the mid 1990s. It was one of the most powerful theatrical experiences of my life. It was more than that, it was a lived experience. The actors were fantastic, The setting so realistic you really felt part of the action, The story line was so powerful I wanted all my friends to see it. I would love to see this work come back to the stage. It was one of the most memorable experiences of my life. I want to buy the book to re-live it.
