Based on the lives of the Tuckeys, a famous fishing family of Mandurah, W.A.. Through the memories and daydreams of Arch Tuckey, history comes to life from the 1920s to the present. On a deeper level, the play examines the effects of change on the individual and broader community, as, through Arch's eyes, we see Mandurah unfold from a small fishing village to a thriving tourist mecca complete with canals. Arch, the quintessential opponent of change, fears its effects, but finds himself unable to resist its force on his life.
