About the play

Australia Day celebrations are an important event in the small country town of Coriole. The organising committee of six members discuss, argue and fight over what will be on the program. The big day finally arrives, and with it, hilarity and disaster in equal measures. The portaloos overflow, the sausages are past their use-by date and the heavens open.

Come along and enjoy these crazy characters and the mayhem they create.
