An expatriate actor, Alec Ritchie, hoping to save his marriage, returns to Australia for the making of a British film about his country. Questions of divided loyalty arise that force Alec to confront both his regard for his family and his attitude to the homeland he left ten years before. A major work, even more relevant now than at its premiere in 1959, confirming Lawler's reputation as the visionary father of modern Australian theatre. (2 acts, 5 men, 3 women).
