STORY OF THE RED MOUNTAINS

by Ben Ellis

A RED DOOR PUBLICATION

"Don’t fool yourself, comrade Thomas. Progress is made throughout revolutionary history via blood. That’s why, when we sing The Red Flag, we sing of the deepest red and our martyred dead." - Liz

It’s 1951. A group of communists and sympathisers gather in preparation for the result of the anti-Communist referendum.

Commissioned by the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA), award-winning playwright Ben Ellis has crafted a distinctly Australian exploration of politics, isolation and violence. The play is based on a rumour that, in the ‘50s, a group of communists in the Blue Mountains were hoarding firearms, ready for the possibility of armed insurrection.
