This wickedly funny new play from the stalwart of political satire, Jonathan Biggins, takes aim at our favourite day off work…Australia Day! It’s a hilarious parody about the bungling grassroots politics of a small town Australia Day Planning Committee as they tackle the really big issues: Does a sausage sizzle code as monocultural? And should the special needs kids be forced to perform their dance routine on the national day? For the members of the Australia Day committee in the small country town of Coriole, the issue of cultural identity is prickly to say the least.
Drawing on his own experiences as an Australia Day ambassador, Biggins takes a swipe at secular traditions and national holidays with fearless wit and good Aussie humour.
