Patrick White, Australia's National treasure, is well-known for his sparse, austere and terse prose. Now one of his short stories has been adapted for the stage in a world first.

The Cockatoos has been described as 'a tale of exclusion and belonging' - a flock of wild cockatoos has descended on the neighbourhood. For some they bring life and renewal but for others, death and destruction.
