Collected Plays Volume 1 (Australian Dramatists)


In 1961, following a now famous controversy in which the Board of the Adelaide Festival rejected it, Patrick White’s The Ham Funeral was brought to the stage by the Adelaide Theatre Guild. This expressionist drama, highly European in consciousness, was the first of its kind to reach the Australian mainstage: it and the three plays which quickly followed blazed the way towards a new kind of theatrical imagination which soon began to draw with a new freedom all forms of poetry, music and the visual arts into the creation of a new kind of indigenous drama.
