Abstract/Summary The play explores the landscape of lives lived in the rural and coastal environs of regional Queensland, capturing the essence of families whose lives are shaped by their relationship to the land. Ruby's aging lover has died in the kitted-out tray of his Hilux ute, gassed on a beach in Darwin; Trish's lover has done a bunk from their roadside store in the Daintree; Patricia is on a bus, heading north into the night; Jonah is an angry boy from Alice Springs who's made a terrible mistake. The journeys of all four characters collide at the truck stop at Three Ways in the Northern Territory.
