AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Four urbane and materialistic Sydneysiders superficially confront their vacuousness in anticipation of the arrival of a long-lost friend with radical political beliefs. A satire on the conventions of Australian bourgeois theatre, An Anarchist at Dinner sets the dinner guest up as the perfect stool-pigeon for the affirming of bourgeois values. The anarchist, however, is not merely coming to dinner. She is bringing a gun. (From The Australian Script Centre web page)
