Shenanigan's Wake is written as a pub-theatre/theatre-restaurant production. Like Jack Hibberd's Dimboola it examines an Australian celebration, this one imported with the masses of Irish immigrants who have been gravitating to these shores since the First Fleet. That celebration is, of course, the wake. Seamus Shenanigan has recently died, the most likely cause being liver failure. It was his wish that 'his mates from the boozer' should send him on his way in a manner that befitted his life. This wake is a most suitable send off. His 'boozer' mates unfortunately are the audience, the paying public! If only they knew!!
