Untitled Document
The One Day of the Year by Alan Seymour
Presenter:
Redland Performing Arts Centre
Description:

Generations clash in this classic Australian play

The One Day of the Year explores the universal theme of father-son conflict against the background and nostalgic sentimentality of Anzac Day.

Alf is a working-class, Pom-hating veteran of the Second World War for whom Anzac Day is both an excuse for boozy camaraderie and a chance to compensate for the disappointments of civilian life. When his son, Hughie, refuses to attend the annual parade and Alf discovers he has written an anti-Anzac feature for his student newspaper with his upper-class girlfriend, Jan, family tensions hit boiling point.

First staged in 1960, Alan Seymour’s landmark play questioned the existence of an Australian class system and challenged us to re-examine a national identity welded to our military history, even in defeat. To this day, the play retains a resonance through our awareness of the post-conflict ripples that impact individuals, families and society.
