The One Day of the Year follows the Cook family during the week of Anzac Day.
While ex-WWII soldier Alf Cook and his friend Wacka Dawson
are preparing for Anzac Day celebrations, they reminisce over a few drinks,
much to the ire of Alf’s wife Dot. Hughie, Alf’s son, is a university student;
his higher education means he finds it difficult to communicate with his working class parents.

an Australian comedy
by Jonathan Biggins
directed by Lynette Hodgson
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.
