Papillon 1854

Rather like siblings, the French and the English either compete or collaborate within the family. However, when confronted by outsiders they unite. During the 18th Century educated French and English spoke both languages. Gilbert Rochefort the fictitious hero, arrives in the Great South Land for personal reasons and his fictitious English counterparts, Katherine and Philip Broughton, form the nucleus of this storyline. Rochefort meets real French characters in Melbourne introduced by the French Consul, Lionel de Moreton de Chabrillan. It is a tale about people anxious to create or experience life unfettered by national tradition or convention. Escapees, adventurers arrive by choice or chance. Historically, events are exposed that have been supressed, hidden or simply forgotten. Arriving in Melbourne Rochefort finds it unsympathetic to climate and situation, inhabitants appear bent on recreating that which they'd left behind and this motivates him to try Van Diemen's Land.
