Visitors leave. Right?

From a smash hit play to an eagerly anticipated novel, Jane Harrison (Rainbow’s End) adds to her impressive oeuvre with The Visitors.

It is a hot day in Warrane when seven Aboriginal men meet to discuss their response to the newly-arrived ships in the harbour. Their decision will impact generations to come.

In conversation with ABC Awaye! host Rudi Bremer, Jane discusses adapting her mainstage play into a novel and the challenges of changing forms.
