Summary
Devil's Playground is a psychological thriller series set in the churches, schools and upper echelons of power in the Australian Catholic Church at a time of change in the late 1980s. The year is 1988. It is 35 years after the events of Fred Schepisi's classic film, The Devil's Playground. Tom Allen, now in his 40s and recently widowed, is a respected Sydney psychiatrist and father of two children. A practising Catholic, Tom accepts an offer by the Bishop of Sydney to become a counsellor of priests. During these sessions, he will uncover a scandal and become embroiled in the Church's attempts to cover it up. Tom's quest for justice will push him to his limits, and reveal a side of Church power and official corruption he could never have imagined
