The Indecent Exposure of Anthony East – 15/08/1968

Title The Indecent Exposure of Anthony East
Start Date 15/08/1968
End Date 17/08/1968
Abstract “This was a first performance, and the first of David Williamson’s plays to be produced. The play had an excellent cental idea, but insufficient material for a three-act play, and had many faults common to inexperienced authors… It is unlikely that it will ever be performed again in its original form.”

Notes Perf Date: August -ran for 3 nights -Lighting Design: Gerald Elsworth -Stage Manager: Helen Shaw -letter from member of T.A.P -name illegible *premiere Programe Note: There is a belief that an Australian writer is an inferior creature. This belief may not be shaken by tonight’s performance – but nevertheless I should like to thank the producer for helping to get this play into a shape which is at least workable, and for his courage in taking an ‘Austalian’ production. We need an Austalian Theatre because we are not Americans, Britons or Swedes, and, until local producers are prepared to do the hard work of finding potential playwrights, helping them to raise rough drafts and enabling them to learn from their own mistakes, we won’t get it. – David Williamson.
