It's Australia, 1996 and the winds of change begin to blow like a gale through the nation as a new government has taken the reins

'From now on people will have to make their own way in the world. People will no longer be rewarded for being weak. The madness is over... The people have spoken. This is what they want, this is what we voted for, and if you don't see it like me, then you are out of step. So get used to it'

Nick's out of step; he's a writer and no writer has ever lived in Liberal Street before

And the residents are making sure he knows it

In this timely satire, John Doyle's infectious humour takes an affable, yet sublimely sharp tilt at an Australia we all recognise

"... comic and profound at the same time, and certainly a triumphant debut by John Doyle, old hand that he otherwise is, as a writer for the stage" ~ John McCallum, The Australian

" ... enthralling theatre, neither taking itself too seriously nor missing the opportunity to proclaim a passionately held view of recent Australian history" ~ Mark Hopkins, Sydney Morning Herald
