What won’t Anya do to get away from her dirty, dirty land?

Anya has chipped her tooth. Something happened and in the fighting it got chipped. Moses and Harry want to help. They’ll do anything for Anya. But no one can leave and there’s no money and the something that happened has poisoned the town against itself. A stark portrait of human frailty, resilience and treachery.

Dirtyland was developed and presented as part of PlayWriting Australia’s National Play Festival 2009.
