Patrick White’s classic 1965 drama The Season at Sarsaparilla is ‘a charade of suburbia’—a play of shadows, rather than substance.

The neighbours that populate the play are held by their environment, waiting with determination, but little expectation, for the inevitable cycle of birth, copulation and death.
