Family Values

Date: 12 Nov 2019

For 50 years, David Williamson has shown us the best and worst of ourselves.

A blackly comic drama situated squarely on the fault lines that divide Australia, Family Values is David at his angry best: furious that his generation has retired from defending the socially compassionate values on which they claim to have built this country.

The play asks us to choose freedom over reputation, empathy over franking credits; to abandon a deeply flawed system for the sake of humanity.

Lee Lewis directs. Belinda Giblin, Danielle King, Andrew McFarlane, Jamie Oxenbould, Ella Prince and Bishanyia Vincent feature.
