AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Three landmark plays from the renaissance of Australian playwriting: 'White with Wire Wheels' was the first play to examine the insecurity inherent in the male culture of women and cars; 'Dimboola', a Rabelaisian account of a country wedding; Monk O'Neill, of 'A Stretch of the Imagination' has become an archetype of Australian character.

Introduction, Paul McGillick , single work criticism (p. vii-xviii)
White with Wire Wheels, Jack Hibberd , single work drama (p. 1-64)
Dimboola : A Wedding Reception Play, Jack Hibberd , single work musical theatre humour

Playfully vulgar, bawdy and boisterous, Dimboola plays out the wedding reception from hell, with the audience actively playing the roles of the guests. A celebration as much as a satire, the play joyously takes a familiar ritual and turns it uproariously on its head.
