Sons of the Morning by Catherine Duncan (1945)

Sons of the Morning was written by Australian playwright Catherine Duncan. Poetic and patriotic in tone, the play is set on the island of Crete during the German invasion of World War Two and depicts Australian soldiers caught up in a drama with a Cretan household and a German fighter pilot. Sisley was to be the director, but this was one production she would not be seeing through to opening night. Just a week into rehearsals, she was tragically killed in a road accident.
