The Eleventh Capital

By Alexandra Wood
Imprint: Nick Hern Books
Paperback : 9781854599889, 96 pages, April 2008


An arresting 60-minute debut play about dislocation, manipulation and power.

Winner of the George Devine Award

From rural backwater to shiny new capital city in one easy move. Perfectly formed. Politically constructed. When your leader plays pin the tail on the donkey with the nation's map, the bureaucrats are bound to be moved and everyone will follow.

You can't stop the march of progress, no one can.
