David Williamson Radio Plays



DEAD WHITE MALES
World Service, 5 Aug 98, rpt. 7 Nov 99. 55m. Adapted for radio by John Foley. Starring Nigel Anthony. Directed for BBC World Service by Gordon House. Play Of The Week.

THE REMOVALISTS....1998(?)
ABC. I remember this was a rather violent play, but can't remember any other details. Ten years since I heard it.

THE CLUB....1990s
ABC, late 1990s(?). Explores the relationships amongst the committee members who run a football club. Another excellent play from the same stable as "The Department". Cast: Peter Carroll, Peter Whitford, John Ewett, Bill Conn, Richard Meikle, John Howard. Adapted for radio and produced by Frank Zeppel.

THE DEPARTMENT....1991
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.

EMERALD CITY....1990
Monday play. 26 Mar 90. No other details.

TRAVELLING NORTH....1987
Afternoon play, 13 Sep 87. Globe theatre, play no. 1.
