Includes A Hard God ~ Peter Kenna & How Does Your Garden Grow ~ Jim McNeil & Coralie Lansdowne Says No ~ Alex Buzo & The Cake Man ~ Robert Merritt

1973-75 is famously remembered as 'the Whitlam years' and the plays of this period reveal a new sense of direction and a need to put the house in order after a brief but heady upheaval

After experiments with social satire, nudity and challenges to public order, the playwrights in this volume turn to the domestic arena to examine more seriously the way the individual is shaped by society

There is also a new preoccupation with personal morality and ethics; and hints of fear and disillusion brought about by change

Peter Kenna retreats to a restricted but more secure society, Alex Buzo wryly questions the advantages of moral freedom, and Jim McNeil and Robert Merritt movingly reveal the toll paid by two of Australia's most deprived communities
