First performed in 1960 and undoubtedly one of Australia’s favourite plays, THE ONE DAY OF THE YEAR explores the universal theme of father–son conflict against the background of the beery haze and the heady, nostalgic sentimentality of Anzac Day.
It is a play to make us question a standard institution – Anzac Day, the sacred cow among Australian annual celebrations – but it is the likeability and genuineness of the characters that give the play its memorable qualities: Alf, the nobody who becomes a somebody on this day of days; Mum, the anchor of the family; Hughie, their son, with all the uncertainties and rebelliousness of youth; and Wacka, the Anzac, with his simple, healing wisdom.
Alf … Paris Romanis
Dot … Monica Greenwood
Hughie … Blake Stringer
Wacka … Max Rackham
Jan … Kirsten Page
