The story is set in Coriole, a fictional regional shire of Australia. The local committee members are at a meeting to plan the forthcoming Australia Day celebrations. In the conversations (and inevitable clashes) that arise between the characters, no topic is sacred: climate change, carbon tax, cricket, politics, asylum seekers, Indigenous Australians and multiculturalism.
Written in 2011 by acclaimed playwright and satirist Jonathan Biggins (co-creator of The Wharf Revue and former columnist for The Good Weekend), Australia Day is a thoroughly modern comedy about national heritage and identity. It is set in the midst of a regional town’s organising committee for Australia Day celebrations.
