The Great Man and Sanctuary: Two plays by David Williamson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Two plays that investigate the divergence of self-interest and truth in public life. The Great Man (1 act: 4 men, 3 women) -- Jack Barclay, great man of the Australian Labour Party, is dead. And with him has died the last remaining connection to the social reforms of 1970s Labour governments. New Labour is thriving in its place, proudly parading economic reform as the defining agenda for the new century. At his funeral, family, friends and party faithful will gather to celebrate his life. Or will they? In the grand tradition of Australian public life, each stake an individual claim to Jack's greatness and put a personal spin on his life and contribution to the nation. Sanctuary (2 acts: 2 men) -- Robert 'Bob' King, an internationally renowned investigative journalist, has returned to his native Australia to retire to the relative isolation of Queensland. But the sanctuary he thought he had found himself is breached by a student about to publish King's biography. Conflict erupts between the young idealist and the pragmatic realist as each challenges the other's true values and motivations. A gripping story that builds in suspense to a thrilling climax, Sanctuary is published here in a revised edition.
