Anderson & Ipeta : a musical in one act / by Mark Dunbar.
by Mark Dunbar (2005)
Anderson & Ipeta is a re-imagining of the characters involved in, and the motives for the massacre that occurred at Myall Creek, NSW in 1838. After a party of white stockmen, mostly convicts and ticket-of-leave men, murdered a defenseless party of Aboriginal old men, women and children, there was an investigation and a trial. The men were acquitted, and then upon retrial, convicted. Seven white men were hanged for the atrocity. This was the first time white men were hanged for murdering Aboriginal Australians. One young convict, George Anderson refused to participate in the crime, and provided crucial evidence at both trials. Anderson & Ipeta is a work of fiction based on these events.
