Formatted Abstract/Summary
In Australia's wild woods, notorious bushrangers rule the land. They'll take a man for every penny and knock his brain from his head without a thought. And with a score to be settled, Bill Fellows and his gang of bushrangers are focused on revenge.

Mr Norwood has a target on his back after ratting out the bushrangers to the police. Now the outlaws won't rest until his windpipe is cut. But when Norwood's beautiful daughter and her English lover get in the way, an unlikely friend comes to their aid.

A milestone of Australian melodrama, The Bushrangers examines honor and trust in the harsh Australian bush and the relationship between white settlers, the aboriginal people and the bushrangers.

The Bushrangers; or, Norwood Vale, was first performed on Thursday 29 May 1834 in Hobart. It was a milestone in Australian drama being the first written, published and performed play by an Australian colony. It was performed again the following year in Launceston by Cordelia Cameron's company.
