BUCKLEY'S HOPE

by Ernie Blackmore

In 1955, following the death of her husband, young Aboriginal woman Maree Turner reluctantly returns to an Aboriginal mission in the small town of Buckley's Creek. When she meets and marries John Hodgson, a white man, thus breaking the unspoken rules that everyone else lives by, both black and white communities begin to self-destruct. This is not a play about 'victims' but rather a story that looks at the three powerful and destructive dichotomies of otherness - black/white, black/black and white/white.
