A romp from the time when Australia was just a collection of roaring colonies. The play is based, loosely, on real court cases and can be performed either in an historic court house, on stage, or any venue set up as a court room. The audience are observers from the body of the court and can be involved in the action. Loads of fun for cast and audience alike and can accommodate any number of players with some doubling if necessary. There are parts for wild colonial lads and lasses from trollops to traps, farmers to felons, publicans to pink-bonnet girls.
