By John O'Donoghue. Directed by Aarne Neeme. Stables Theatre, Darlinghurst. A Documentary Theatre Work based on the life of Essington Lewis, and the establishment and development of BHP in Australia. The play begins on Essington Lewis' death day as he prepares for a gallop on his favourite horse and through flash back tells the story of his life working for the mining and steel producing giant. The time frame straddles the late nineteenth century to the end of World War II and parallels the growth and development of Australia from a primary producing nation to a secondary one.
