Margaret Williams argues that 'the greatest single factor in setting Australian playwrights free to explore the dramatic possibilities of their own society has been the decline of naturalism, particularly of the well-made naturalistic play' (308). She comments on recent plays, especially by Jack Hibberd, Alex Buzo and David Williamson, suggesting that they each 'make imaginative use of the social ritual and verbal cliches of Australian society to explore insecurity and inadequacy behind their defensive facades (310)'.
