FATHOM

by Donna Abela

Underwater, off the coast of Broome, an English deep sea diver suffers acutely from the bends. As he ascends slowly to the surface, in his fraying mind he wrestles with a Chinese Sea Dragon and reconsiders the myths that fuelled a failed push to rid the pearling grounds of "Asiatic" divers. It is 1913 and the White Australia Policy is tightening its grip.

A time-crossing radio play that weaves myth and poetic realism together.
