CASTING: 2M, 4F
The Battle of Fromelles took place on the days of July 19th and 20th, 1916, and came to be known as "the worst 24 hours in Australia's entire history." This play recounts the story of a fictional 'first body' in the shape of Mick Feeney - stubborn Australian miner from Ballarat, who volunteered, even though he was in his late 30s.


THE WINE AND WISDOM SERIES
There is something about the human psyche and the way it responds to the challenge of a quiz. Some people become highly competitive, others become uncertain. All human emotions surface during a quiz - arrogance; frustration; nostalgia; enjoyment; sociability - the list is endless.
All the plays in this series mine the very rich vein of those emotions. Audiences will find them moving; funny; even thought-provoking - but they won't be bored!
The Wine and Wisdom plays are designed to be stand alone, for entry into festivals, or bolted together in twos and threes for an evening of themed drama.
