'Shift '- A New Play About Life in the Hunter Valley
“Shift” is a new play written by PP Cranney, directed by Verity Higgins and featuring Simone Bailey, Andrew Dempster, Caitlin Folpp, Patrick Moore, Wendell Peacock, Kellie Tym, Wayde Walker and Richard Wootten.
When Kate’s elderly father dies after a lifetime mining underground, her relationships with family, friends and community come into sharp focus. Her husband Gary is constantly tired from working twelve hour shifts mining coal, her daughter has become an anti-coal activist and a multinational mining company wants to buy her property.
