For sixteen years Barney and Roo, two masculine Queensland cane-cutters, have come south to Melbourne for their annual lay-off season. Each year they bring a kewpie doll as a memento for their barmaid sweethearts, and stay for five months in a faded Carlton terrace house – a time which all four live for, and which makes the rest of the year endurable. But on their seventeenth visit, in the summer of 1953, things “go off the rails” with unforeseen outcomes. At the heart of this remarkable, iconic Australian play lies the pain of having to change despite the desire to keep things the way they’ve always been.
