“The Wolf came back, Mum”

In a desolate Tasmanian country town, a small child is murdered and suspicion falls on nine-year-old Lizzie. Her mother Angela is faced with the heartbreaking choice between ignoring the suspicion that her daughter is guilty and handing her over to the police.

As the investigation progresses, Lizzie is not the only one who is changed forever by the events that unfold. The adults around her, bewildered and full of denial, find their accepted beliefs challenged as the world they think they know disintegrates, exposing a legacy of violence and deceit.

The debut play from the winner of the Patrick White Playwrights’ Fellowship for 2013, taps into the tensions, conflicts and dynamics of tight-knit communities to explore the disturbing subject of children who kill the fine line between innocence and amorality, and to pose the question: is there such a thing as intrinsic evil? PHOTOS PRESS
