The visitors

15 Feb 2014
Description

A new play reimagines first contact from an Aboriginal perspective. In Jane Harrison's latest work The Visitors, seven nervous clan leaders meet on the harbour foreshore in Gadigal country as the tall ships of the First Fleet prepare to unload their human cargo. Their decision has far reaching implications for all the clan leaders: do they welcome the visitors or do they make war?
