What if the Owners of the owners of the land showed up?
Full Moon Over Faulconbridge was originally conceived as a radio play. It was produced as a radio serial comprising ten half hour episodes with substantial airplay on the CBAA (Community Broadcast Association of Australia) radio network, and featured at the High and Dry Festival in 2010.
Full Moon Over Faulconbridge is a comedy set in a fantasy version of the Blue Mountains, NSW. It is a story of reconciliation and healing, and deals with the themes of respect for the earth, respect for each other and the misuse of power. It follows the path of Bernard, an overly intellectual Eastern monk, whose flute, carved from the wood of the sacred Bila tree, is chosen by the indigenous spirit of the land to be a conduit for the power of Life. When Margaret, a frustrated housewife with murderous tendencies, steals the flute and abuses its power for her own ends, Bernard must find a way to stop her, but first he must find himself, which he does with the help of Merv, Margaret’s ex-husband turned Were-Kangaroo, and Robyn, a cynical ex-journalist. When the Owners of the owners of the land show up at the next full moon, will the heroes have achieved the task appointed to them, or will the Blue Mountains descend into darkness?
