Summary
Play narrating the revolutionary feats and achievements of Captain Midnight VC (he won the V.C. in World War I), the illegitimate son of an Aboriginal woman and an English peer. Politically charismatic, he eventually leads an uprising of Aboriginal people (aided by "black brothers" from Africa and the USA) which compels the government to eject all Europeans from Tasmania and give it back to the Aboriginal people as `Trugininiland'
