White set out to write what he believed to be the first Australian tragedy. Along the way he happily strayed into other genres. The result is the wild and curious tale of a hermit goatkeeper, gatekeeper to a lonely mountain top: a disaffected academic and his equally disaffected, alcoholic wife: and a lost soul retreating from her own life by attempting to fulfil the lives of others. The play is as irreverent and entertaining as it is intellectually challenging (3 acts, 5 men, 4 women).
