The Drover's Wife (out May 5) is based on the 3,000 word Henry Lawson short story from 1892 and offers a tour de force lead performance from writer-director-star Leah Purcell. The supporting players/subplots lack complexity but this is Purcell's show and you understand her character in rich detail. Grade: B+.
