A hard working farming couple, their egotistical daughter, and disregarded son are taking in a Syrian refugee... at least they’re trying to. First they must impress the hard nosed representative from the Refugee Council of Australia. This will involve wearing pants, demonstrating a sensitive cultural awareness, keeping unwanted boyfriends, girlfriends, and neighbours at bay, and ensuring everyone stays alive.
"This is a hilarious play. It draws out two contradictory aspects of Australian Culture. It shows the traditional, genuine Australian instinct for hospitality and concern for those in need; and sets that against the hysteria about refugees and, in particular, Muslim refugees. It captures the Australian capacity for hiding (and hiding from) our worst impulses and our worst conduct". - Julian Burnside, AO QC.
