The Great Australian Play
Time Out says
This indie epic will re-write Australian history – and the national theatre canon
Patrick White Award-winning playwright Kim Ho can only do so much in the face of national cuts to arts funding. The plan: to write a historical play retracing the steps of Harold Bell Lasseter, a prospector who insisted there was a great reef of gold in the heart of the country. The problem: the five adventurer characters created for the play are trapped in Ho’s new Australian masterpiece, and they’re coming face to face with all the myths we tell ourselves about Australia and the fabric of our local identity. Indie avant-garde director Saro Lusty-Cavallari steers this journey into a world of the past, via Nazi dingo scalpers, con-men, and ancient evil to arrive at an imagined future.
