Formatted Abstract/Summary
Three women, exiled from their homelands, find their stories are woven together across continents and decades. Nell Tritton, the Brisbane wife of a deposed Russian prime minister, forms a close friendship with Nina Berberova, who is exiled in Paris. The woman who would tell their story is Alyona, a Russian curator who finds her dreams of a new Australian paradise crushed by bankruptcy and the Fitzgerald Inquiry.

Shortlisted for the 2013 Patrick White Playwrights' Award, Motherland is a tapestry of friendship, displacement, home, and identity - a finely crafted story of the casualties of love, ambition, and politics.
