Down in the wheat-belt town of Mukinupin, east of the rabbit-proof fence, the shopkeeper’s daughter Polly is in love with young Jack Tuesday. Her parents disapprove, but in this friendly community of battlers, you feel that love will overcome all. Still, every town has its dark side and Mukinupin keeps hers well-hidden.
Merry hearts and broken spirits. One of the treasures of Australian playwriting, Dorothy Hewett’s The Man from Mukinupin sharpens its sweet romanticism with hardship’s salt tears.
