To Kill a Cassowary by Laurie Trott

Friday 5 March to Saturday 13 March 2021

About the play

Old Amos leads an eccentric life hidden deep in the tropical rainforest of Far North Queensland’s Cassowary Coast. He’s a bohemian eco-warrior, a spiritual eclectic and a cantankerous loner but for the occasional visit from his mysterious neighbour, Josie. His idyllic existence living amongst the Orange-footed Scrub Fowl and the elusive Cassowary, however, is endangered when his estranged daughter Paula moves in. She has her eyes on his precious real estate. She has plans. Over my dead body, thinks Amos. He may be right.
