'Recapping the story so far: Gondwana, Dreamtime, Captain Cook, Convicts, Explorers, Squatters, Gold Fields, Federation, Anzacs, Kokoda, Menzies, The Dismissal, America's Cup, Sydney Olympics and Sorry. That's pretty much all you need to know about Australia and its history, because we are a simple people with a simple past. Aren't we?
'In Australia! The Show! the myths hit the fan. This rollicking comedy invites us on an unconventional journey through the history of Australia, as seen through the eyes of ambitious local theatre aficionado, Leslie Barrymore Lockett and his clown side-kick, Owen. With a soundtrack reluctantly provided by indigenous musician Terry, and a lot of theatrical licence, they attempt to recreate the moments that shaped our great nation.'
