Living aboard neighbouring boats in a crowded marina, Col, Baxter and Jackie are middle-aged fringe-dwellers

Each of them nurses secret wounds and anxieties, and although their vessels are ocean-going craft, none seems likely to ever leave the safe confines of the harbour

They are hiding from the world behind and beyond

On Australia Day, drunk, lost and angry, a young English backpacker called Dee turns up on the jetty and her arrival unleashes chaos

Suddenly no secret is safe, nothing is fixed As the nation celebrates, the cosy fantasy of safety from the past is blown open in a funny, bitter torrent of loose talk

"Winton's capacity to write stirring, fluent theatre dialogue shines through... Rising Water charts new territory: every word is pure Winton" ~The Australian
