On the evening of Saturday 23 April, I had the good fortune to attend a performance

of Alaine Beek’s Point of No Return at the Wyndham Cultural Centre. I write in

support of this engaging new historical drama. Much has been written and

documented about Australia’s convict heritage but little of the boys sent for

rehabilitation to the Point Puer boys prison near Port Arthur, Tasmania. The play

focuses on a group of six boys and their struggle for survival in a hostile and brutal

environment. Every character’s journey through the drama is crafted with aplomb by

Ms Beek to create a compelling, moving and sometimes humorous story that is a

triumph of the human spirit. As well as one adult male role the play offers six roles

for young men or teenagers. Point of No Return is a play that has the possibility to

tour, be staged by professional or amateur theatre companies or even schools. I

have no hesitation in recommending Point Of No Return for production or

publication.
