ABC. Set within a Higher Education college. A tertiary teaching
institution and inter-departmental politics. This was first
presented on the stage in 1974. Before becoming a full-time
writer, David Williamson was a lecturer in a Victorian College
of Technology. His fascination with group dynamics and human
interaction at staff meetings led to the writing of this play.
It's set in 1967, and the academic staff of the Department of
Engineering are about to meet in the Thermodynamics Laboratory.
This play is a cracker....
easily the best ABC play I've heard.
