THE SERPENT'S TEETHby Daniel Keene
Set at the dividing wall of a war-torn country, conflict is an unseen force which disrupts the everyday tasks of people, battling to survive.
Set in an Air Force hangar far from the battlefield. But for five families, who gather to receive the bodies of their sons, brothers and friends, war does not seem so far away.
Keene's astute and probing insight into the insidious effects of global tensions give us cause to reflect on the true human cost of armed conflict whether it is close to home or not.
"The writing is razor-sharp, remarkably and memorably profound; at times, ravishingly beautiful ... it's extraordinary!" - Australian Stage
