“If you want social satire and huge laughs at the expense of, well, just about everyone in our sun-drenched country, Jonathan Biggins’ Australia Day is just the ticket.” Sydney Morning Herald

The country town of Coriole is getting ready for Australia Day – a time to crack open a frothy, stick a snag on the barbie and celebrate what it means to be a true blue Aussie.

The Australia Day committee is gearing up to put on the town’s biggest party – but they have a few issues of their own to sort out first. With everyone from the Greens to the local mayor to the CWS wanting a piece of the party pie, its proving hard yakka to work out what an Aussie celebration should look like. Nothing is sacred as the national identity is put through the wringer!

Will the day be fair dinkum after all? Or are there too many roos loose in the community hall?

A thoroughly modern ripper of a comedy, by acclaimed satirist Jonathan Biggins.
