The Drover's Wife is utterly authentic, brilliantly plotted, thoroughly harrowing and entirely of our times exploring race, gender, violence and inheritance.

Leah Purcell’s play caused a sensation on performance and won the NSW Premier’s Book of the Year award and now she is expanding the script to write a novel that while still ‘Tarantino meets Deadwood’ is also so much more.

In the titular character the drover’s wife, Purcell has created a figure who is as resonant and significant as Ned Kelly. Lawson’s original short story is re-imagined vividly to portray the drover’s heroic wife as a righteous avenger – on behalf of herself, her children and her race – in a savage male world.

A taut thriller of our pioneering past, The Drover's Wife is full of fury and power and has a black sting to the tail, reaching from our nation's settled infancy into our complicated present.
