Full Moon Over Faulconbridge is an original Australian story first conceived and produced as audio theatre in 2006.
One paragraph synopsis:
Both the living and the dead are challenged to answer for their misconduct and disrespect for the land and its people. For this purpose, a flute of healing power is given to an angry monk by the Creation Spirit. It is stolen by a power-hungry woman and used by her to exchange bodies with the monk’s beautiful ex-girlfriend. The monk must complete his training in order to face down the self-proclaimed witch and reclaim his girlfriend. He must face his fears, especially, his master and father, to eventually discover that the woman he must battle is his mother. In the process of uncovering the truth, he finds that the witch-woman tried to kill her husband who has turned into a were-kangaroo.
Many Australians are currently locked in a spiritual and cultural limbo: some of us are finding that the old structures of religion are no longer serving us in the way that they did, but we are wary of shallow, marketable ‘new-age’ replacements. Whether we are religious or not, all of us are on a journey, and need to deal with the questions of identity, truth and compassion. Many Australians, even those who do not have an indigenous background, feel a connection to Indigenous traditions and long to share the experience of belonging to the land – but how? Full Moon Over Faulconbridge explores this strange territory with depth, humour and a healthy dose of post-modernist weirdness. It is not an indigenous story: it is a story about the invader’s relationship to the place they have ‘conquered’, and whether they will allow it to ‘conquer’ them back.
