A deserted industrial town where the desert meets the sea. Two sisters, the last inhabitants of the once thriving town, defiantly refuse to leave their home on the outskirts.

DRY is a dystopian western inspired by the desert town of Port Augusta and its tough inhabitants.

Set in the past, present or future this fierce small cast play exposes our relationship to the land, the First People, refugees and each other.
