Hinterland by Matt Cameron

Afraid of the dark and plagued by power failure, Henry Quealy is living in the shadow of terror. Returning one day from his job as a door-to-door salesman selling doors, Henry discovers a hitherto hidden portal in the wall of his home. The government declares Henry a shadow of his former self — literally — and he is taken away through the mystery door. Hinterland is a satirical comedy about the divided self and the paranoia of the insular state written by Australian Playwright, Matt Cameron.

Hinterland is presented by arrangement with Matt Cameron and the Australian Script Centre.
