Notes Written and directed by Rohan Trollope and Simon Day, and workshopped by the Cast. Original music by Chris Mildren. Lyrics by Rohan Trollope and Simon Day.Join Michael Phar, five other Australian backpackers and international art critic Robert Hughes as they do Europe and, somehow, the great Australian film. Exploring art galleries and national identity, famous sights and that horse they’ve got stuffed in the Museum of Victoria, the highs and lows of travelling and bursting into song at inopportune moments. As Robert Hughes says, “A show for anyone who has ever stood in front of the Mona Lisa and discussed footy, or indeed been disgusted by the discussion.” All right so he didn’t really say that, we just made it up.
