The most dramatic thing about Australian Theatre is it’s history.

For anyone who wants to know why making theatre in Australia seems so hard Dr Rob presents a whirlwind history of Australian Theatre from it’s beginnings to the present day. The story of theatre in Australia is filled with setbacks, triumphs and betrayals. It’s a history of class warfare, corporate greed, governmental incompetence and the indefatigable resilience of Australian artists. And some jokes, there’ll be some jokes too.

“Robert Reid is to narrative drama what the Big Bang is to the Book of Genesis.”

Written, directed and performed by Robert Reid
