NAVIGATING FLINDERS

by Don Reid

The play is set in Mauritius where Matthew Flinders was detained for 6 years while returning from his explorations around Australia to England. It deals with the relationships he established in Mauritius with his captors and families on the island, including Delphine, the estate owner's daughter. At the same time there are shifts in place to his relationships at home, including his wife and Joseph Banks.
