January, 1788. A strange sight greets those gathered on the shore of Gadigal land – ships of a type and size never seen before. Where are they from? Who and what do they carry? Should the strangers be welcomed – or should the clans rise as one and resist?
Famed for her plays Stolen and Rainbow’s End, playwright and Muruwari descendant Jane Harrison turns her attention to that pivotal moment when the First Fleet first dropped anchor.
In The Visitors, seven senior law men meet to decide how to respond. Their decision must be unanimous and will have far-reaching implications for all.

Presented by Sydney Festival, Moogahlin Performing Arts and Carriageworks, The Visitors is a powerful, imaginative response to the beginnings of modern Australia.
