Many real life stories are discussed through out the performance, including the Wedge family drowning, opportunities for gold discovery, typical jobs mentioned around the farm, difficulties of heat in summer for food preservation and confrontation with Aboriginals.

This event is recommended for children over 12 years due to ‘scary elements’.
