Winner of the Laurence Olivier Play of the Year Award 1988

Australia 1789

A young married lieutenant is directing rehearsals of the first play ever to be staged in that country

But with only two copies of the text, a cast of convicts, and one leading lady who may be about to be hanged, conditions are hardly ideal . . .

'Rarely has the redemptive, transcendental power of theatre been argued with such eloquence and passion.' Georgina Brown, Independent

Methuen Student Editions are expertly annotated texts of a wide range of plays from the modern and classic repertoires

As well as the complete text of the play itself, the volume contains a chronology of the playwright's life and work; an introduction giving the background to the play; a discussion of the various interpretations; and notes on individual words and phrases in the text

REVIEWS

"Wertenbaker has searched history and found in it a humanistic lesson for hard modern times: rough, sombre, undogmatic and warm" ~ Sunday Times

"Highly theatrical, often funny and at times dark and disturbing, it sets an infant civilization on the stage with clarity, economy and insight" ~ Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph
