“They won’t let you scream, they’ll clamp your jaw shut/ The harder you try, the more the trap cuts/ all the flesh from your face, and your skull and your eyes/ They smile as you bleed and they laugh as you cry.”

The Midlands

by Hannah Malarski

Tasmania – eking out a subsistence existence hidden away from the outside world. One day, an unexpected stranger arrives at their doorstep, injured and seeking help. Through his arrival the characters are slowly drawn together into a tenuously harmonious triangle, but as opposing beliefs and desires emerge, things begin to edge into dangerous territory. A gripping foray into Australian Gothic – inside it’s warm and safe, but outside the traps are waiting.
