• The One Day of the Year by Alan Seymour

    The One Day of the Year by Alan Seymour

    2nd June 2015
    7:30pm to 10:30pm

    A play followed by a reception to meet the cast…

    Join us at the award winning Finborough Theatre in Earl’s Court for the first UK production in over fifty years of Alan Seymour’s iconic play about ANZAC Day, The One Day of the Year, starring Mark Little from Neighbours and directed by Wayne Harrison, former Artistic Director of the Sydney Theatre Company.  Defibrillator Productions presents this iconic Australian play in commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of Gallipoli.

    The One Day of the Year is a family drama that looks at Australia’s national ANZAC legend through the eyes of generation, class and character.  Father and son argue over whether the ANZAC Day celebrations are an important forging of Australia’s national identity or just another excuse for a boozy day off.

    Alan Seymour was a high profile writer for BBC television drama but made his name with The One Day of the Year when it generated huge controversy in Australia following its opening in 1960 as it was viewed as ‘anti-war’.

    The Britain-Australia Society has booked out this jewel of a theatre (just under 50 seats) for a special night on Tuesday 2 June 2015.  Join us after the show for a drink and nibbles with the cast and creative team and swap some ANZAC stories!

    To secure your tickets, please book by Wednesday 20 May 2015.  Book NOW as tickets are limited.

    Your ticket includes a glass of wine, beer or soft drink while you mingle with the cast.

    Members of the Britain-Australia Society should book by logging in as usual.
