A frightful stay in the ‘Yabba’
Wake In Fright, Ten, Sunday at 8.30pm
THIS two-part television event is a modern retelling of the iconic Australian film, based on Kenneth Cook’s 1961 novel of the same name.
The mini-series follows young school teacher John Grant (Sean Keenan, pictured) who finds himself marooned in the fictitious mining town of Bundanyabba in Australia’s outback.
John is seduced by shady strangers at the local pub on an alcohol-fuelled night of gambling that leads to a dangerous series of events.
Wake In Fright features an all-star cast including David Wenham, Alex Dimitriades, Caren Pistorius, Gary Sweet and Robyn Malcolm.
Directed by Kriv Stenders (Red Dog) and filmed in Broken Hill and Sydney, this is one of the most highly-anticipated TV dramas of the year.
