Next, is an Australian Comedy that delves into the questions of what is Australia Day all about and what is Australia? Set in a Scout Hall (a familiar venue for REP actors) and a sports field, Australia Day by noted satirist and Wharf Revue creator Jonathan Biggins has “something to offend everyone”, while challenging the concept of Australian identity and exploring “the dedication and passion of the organising committees”. Cate Clelland returns to direct this quintessential Australian look at Australia.
