"Australia Day"

an Australian comedy

by Jonathan Biggins

directed by Lynette Hodgson

Synopsis

The  country  town  of Coriole is getting ready for Australia Day – a time to crack open a frothy,
stick a snag on the barbie and celebrate what it means to be a true blue Aussie.

The Australia Day Organising Committee consists of a group of disparate personalities
 from Council and the local community, each of whom has his/her own agenda, and the
ensuing chaos makes for a hilarious and sometimes heart wrenching comedy.
