A HOLE IN THE GROUND

by Janet Brown, Joanne Ryan

A Hole In The Ground explores what happens in a community that works together on a strategic campaign against an unpopular proposal by big business that is supported by the government.

With two narrators - an environmental activist and a government minister - arguing about power, responsibility and control, the play illuminates the impact on people's lives when they commit to working on such a campaign. The play is based on the Werribee No Toxic Dump campaign of the 1990s.
