HEARTH - by Fleur Murphy
Published by Lab Kelpie Press
It’s the 7th of February 2009 – forever known in Australia’s history as ‘Black Saturday.’ It’s also Tom Robinson’s 18th Birthday. Celebrations kick off at the Robinson’s Kinglake home and nothing seems out of the ordinary. But tensions start to rise between Tom and his older brother Matthew, along with the temperature outside, and before the ice-cream cake has time to melt a deeply held family secret is revealed.
A compelling new Australian drama about family and belonging, forged in the exploration of an environmental threat Australians know all too well - an approaching bushfire.
Length: 85 mins

Recommended for ages 16+, contains some coarse language, references to violence, sexual references and references to bushfires.
“Hearth is an extraordinarily prescient play for our times. With its mixture of pathos and humour, it’s seamlessly crafted from go to woe. The characters are complex and highly conflicted, their stories delicately woven and delivered through emotionally charged language that leaves you floored.”
- Raimondo Cortese

My Country for a Peach - by Fleur Murphy
The nostalgia of a more fruitful time haunts the mind of a lone peach farmer as he nears the end of his battle against big industry takeovers.
My Country for a Peach is inspired by the stories and situations that fruit farmers were facing when preserving companies such as SPC Ardmona stopped sourcing their supply locally. On the verge of losing everything, many farmers in the Shepparton area were left with no other choice but to rip out and burn their trees.
