Title Time Is Not Yet Ripe
Start Date 20/06/1972

Abstract The play is a political commentary written in a distinctive Victorian style. the play remains amazingly frsh, partly because of its immediate topicality in an election year. This production will provide an excellent contast to the more contemporary plays of teh rest of the Australian season, and will bring to light a peice of rarely appreciated tradition of Australian Theatre. A ‘brilliant political comedy’.
