SYNOPSIS: Stanley has dominated the hostile landscape of his outback farm and his family for over 50 years. His youngest daughter, Samatha, returns for a family celebration after many years of living in the city and, amid the squabbling of chooks and howling of dogs, plans to plant her feet firmly in protest of the past. But how clearly does she see the past, and what subtle, hushed tragedies has she overlooked? 

With ironic humour, insight and toughness, Kathryn Ash paints a vivid picture of a quintessentially Australian family. Originally developed by Just Us Theatre Ensemble in Cairns, Bag O' Marbles is not simply regional theatre at its best, it is a fine example of contemporary Australian drama. 

PRODUCTION HISTORY: Bag 0’ Marbles was first staged on 31 May 1994, by Just Us Theatre Ensemble (JUTE) in Cairns. After further development, Bag O’ Marbles was presented as a co-production by the Queensland Theatre Company and Just Us Theatre Ensemble, opening on Thursday, 28 March 2002
