On the Wednesday before Easter, 1998, one of the most dramatic events in recent Australian history took place

It was the culmination of a tightly planned scheme between the Federal Government and a stevedoring company to smash the Maritime Union of Australia (MUA) and the wharfies

Katherine Thomson's gripping new drama is set against the backdrop of this explosive and industrial dispute

Sandy, a retired wharfie, comes home after six years' absence to find his family divided. His kids have moved on and up. They're on opposite sides of the political divide. The world has changed, and it seems he no longer has a place in it

But he's a battler, with a burning desire to unite his family and set the past to rights

The play is introduced by Jennie George MP, former president of the ACTU and is also the winner of the NSW Premier's Literary Award for Drama
