Writer Jill Shearer from QTC was in the visitors’ gallery during the infamous Fitzgerald Inquiry about police corruption, and explored the dilemma of a policewoman married to a policeman, deciding whether to investigate her police sergeant father.


Tricia Garson played "Sarah" of Internal Investigations who uncovers a murder case implicating her father (Doug Melvin). Amy-Lee Bent was the young cello-playing sister with Jean Knight the mother.


Smaller roles went to Ron Halpin, Charlie Clough (playing Sarah’s husband) and Judy Hayhoe singing Cry Me A River.


The author Jill Shearer was the only Australian female writer to have a show on Broadway, the controversial "Shimada" (1992) about Japanese war atrocities.
