Original Drama

Red Earth


Listening in a quiet place lets me see.

When the body of a German man is bought into Coober-Pedy, South Australia, by members of an Indigenous desert mob, the local police are surprised when a post mortem points to murder.

Christian Betton, a disenchanted detective is sent from Berlin to investigate. He is surprised to discover his Australian counterpart is Linda Bauer, an ambitious, bilingual Indigenous woman with German heritage.

RED EARTH is an intriguing, episodic murder-mystery; a journey of discovery into the enigmatic heart of the Australian desert, and into the lives of two very different detectives. Both Linda and Christian will be forced to look inward beyond the traumatic, hidden events of their pasts, in order to solve the crime.

The detectives are as much a mystery as the crime.

 “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.”

It’s 2013. 4 women in their 30’s carve out a life for themselves – a life that continues to be intrinsically shaped by their mothers’ influences.

Thrust together as youngsters in 1980 when their mothers gathered to console each other following the shocking assassination of John Lennon, the girls maintained contact and grew into the most solid of friends. Sure they they’ll bitch and moan about each other — not to mention their mothers, but united the 4 are a formidable force.

2013 The death of one of the mother’s husbands and the departure of a live in partner results in a relocation which lands all the mothers and daughters in the same city for the first time in decades.  The arrival sparks a series of events that brings into laser sharp clarity the effect The Beatles tour has had on the women and their offspring.

A need for a transplant, a compatible donor and ontly the father’s side will do.  The biological father.  The one whose records you listend to – not the one you grew up calling dad.

Ordinary people doing Extraordinary things in Extreme Conditions.

Australia in the sixties and young people everywhere were dancing to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.. The kids wanted to make love not war. Nurses were the most under resourced group in the health system. Responding to flyers on the hospital noticeboard and looking for adventure 100’s of Australian nurses volunteered to work in Vietnamese provincial hospitals during the war years 1964 – 1972. The closest they’d come to Asia was eating sweet and sour pork at the local Chinese take away. And not one of them knew where Vietnam was!

Heads turned to watch as Jan Power strode confidently towards the boardroom of Freeman and Fellows Advertising and Marketing Firm. Jan was gorgeous. Good genes, a personal trainer three times a week, a supervised eating plan and an excellent and expensive face life put her age at somewhere between 45 and 50. Not the fifty-six she was approaching. Jan was the mastermind behind the new Business Master Plan; a plan to help the company ‘move forward’ whilst remaining ‘financially viable’ in a time of ‘economic downturn’. Entering the room her confidence rose as she saw that all the big boys were present. Once seated the CEO praised the plan. The company would implement every power point including the restructuring of personnel. And as the mastermind behind this plan Jan would be the first to acknowledge that her position was… superfluous.

And that is why the decision had been made to Let. Her. Go!

What does a woman who has had it all, have to learn to LET GO of a life style she’s experienced for the last 20 years?
