A sound poem about life in the notorious inner city suburb of Redfern. Narrated by a resident of the troubled neighbourhood, Redfern Heights tells the story of Odile Merton, whose bag is snatched by Scott Gethsemani, and of Margaret Dobbie who is struck by a hit and run driver. Bringing them together and trying to solve both crimes is Constable Inkster of the local police. Redfern Heights is a moving, musical and eerily prescient insight into the realities of poverty and neglect that many inner-city Australians still face every day. (Available as either stage or radio play.)
