vi + 22 + xii + 23-54 pages including b/w illustrations. An interesting play with a great look at the family. This play was written especially for three of Australia's ?nest Aboriginal actors. It is a work of great atmosphere, passion and humour. Three half sisters have drifted about as far apart as it's possible to drift, but when they meet again at the ramshackle house on stilts where they grew up, it's to do more than bury their mother. Does the island that's called them across the mud flats since they were kids hold the key’? Or will the journey there reveal more’? Perhaps not since Inside The Island has Louis Nowra produced a piece that burns so colourful and mysterious an imprint on the mind's eye.

Huis Clos, Sartre, Jean Paul
5 Sartre, Jean Paul Huis Clos
U. K. Routledge 1987 0415040035 / 9780415040037 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
106 pages. Includes the full French text of the play, accompanied by French-English vocabulary. Notes and a detailed introduction in English put the work in its social and historical context. "Hui Clos" is arguably Sartre’s best play and has enjoyed Wide popularity since its first performance in Paris in 1944. Its success, not only in France, but also in many other countries, is to a great extent due to its dramatic qualities: anyone can appreciate the highly-charged atmosphere of this representation of hell. But "Hui Clos", perhaps more than any of his other plays, gives compelling expression to some of Sartre’s existentialist ideas. "Hui Clos" is reissued here with a new introduction in which Keith Gore situates the play in the context both of its time and of Sartre’s career. He focuses on the relationship between Sartre an existentialism and the drama, showing how Sartre’s views on the theatre. are consistent with his philosophy, and how "Hui Clos" may be seen as reflecting those views. One of the things that emerges from this reading of the play is the error of believing that Sartre intended it to show that ‘Hell is other people’. "Hui Clos", is also a French-language drama film from 1954, directed by Jacqueline Audry, written by Jean-Paul Sartre, and starring Jean-Marie Amato and Louis de Funes.

108 pages. 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
