SYNOPSIS - HARBOUR BY KATHERINE THOMPSON

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. An attempt to smash the Maritime Union of Australia -- the wharfies.

Sandy - a retired wharfie - comes home after a six year absence to find his family divided. His kids have moved on -- and up. they're on opposite sides of the political divide. His wife doesn't want to be in the same room as him. 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. A past full of explosive secrets that threaten to blow them apart forever.

Katherine Thomson's spirited and questing family saga set against the backdrop of the 1998 maritime dispute is a robust and wondrous play, funny, warm-hearted and an exciting work due to its lively interplay of the personal and political.
