To Kill a Cassowary

A Comedy by Laurie Trott

One hard-headed bloke, one hard-hearted daughter in a battle for the future.

A heart-warming comedy set in the rainforest with extraordinary design including a major AV design element that will surprise and delight. Directed by Bridget Boyle (The Longest Minute) with a team of award-winning designers and actors, this is set to be a terrific start to our new year.

SYNOPSIS: Retired bulldozer driver Amos Hardy is crook. He desperately wants to protect his precious rainforest block, his ‘atonement’, on the shores of Floriade Bay, gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, from developers. Leading the charge for development is his estranged daughter Paula. She cannot see the natural value and beauty of the place for the dollar signs reflecting off the glistening waters of the Coral Sea. She wants to clear the land and build a high-end gambling tourist resort. But first she has to get it. Over Amos’ dead body!
