Actors for 1960s Australian Play

New South Wales, Australia
Listed by View details

The Theatre on Chester is presenting The One Day of the Year written by Alan Seymour and directed by Kaye Lopez.

In this Australian classic, Hughie Cook, a young university student, helps his girlfriend Jan to write an adverse newspaper article about the Anzac Day memorial celebrations. This sparks family conflict between Hughie and his father Alf who is an ex-servicemen. Is this a day of “one long grog-up” or a day to reflect on loyalty to a Nation? The play gradually uncovers the strands of prejudice and ignorance and explores the universal theme of father/son conflict, against the background of the beery haze and the heady, nostalgic sentimentality of Anzac Day, the sacred cow among Australian annual celebrations - the one day of the year.

Rehearsals will be Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
Performance dates are - March 21, 22*, 23*, 26, 28, 29, 30*, April 4, 5, 6*, 9, 11, 12
*Performances at 5pm, all other performances at 8pm
