In the spectacular far reaches of remote Australia lies a debt-ridden, drought-exhausted cattle station.
Station owner, Alma, a robust seventy-nine-year-old, refuses to relinquish her property despite the cattle long gone and the bank threatening seizure.
Out of the blue a wealthy stranger appears bearing gifts. Alma spies a plan of salvation. Hope is now on her horizon and prosperity is in the air. However, a thunderous storm from her past is now rolling her way.
And I’m the Queen of Sheba probes the impact of war, invasion and displacement for Second World War victims and First Nations people.
Using magical realism, humour and pathos, playwright Kate Wyvill explores the human need for safety and a place to belong.
