Cocky’s Crossing is a rollicking musical set in the middle of a cyclone in outback Australia where a group of European tourists are stranded with an assortment of colourful locals.
It’s a story about an Englishman who thought he’d bought a pub, but got diddled because he ended up with only half of it and has no money left to go back home. The scenes are played out through the vivid imagination of the Englishman’s daughter, a demure girl with an alter ego that is sexy and sensuous, proud and tempestuous. If she doesn’t drive men to drink, she kills them.
Interpretation: Set in a pub beyond the black stump in the north of WA.
