Williamson: Collected Plays Vol. III


One of Australia’s Living National Treasures and its best known and most widely performed playwright, David Williamson brings us five of his latest works. Now in his 70s, age has not wearied him, and indeed this collection exemplifies Williamson’s uncanny ability to be timely, relevant and thoroughly modern.

As director Sandra Bates notes in her introduction Williamson is unique in Australian theatre because of "his ability to see and understand Australia’s current circumstances, our society’s circumstances right here, right now; indeed to be ahead of what is current."
