“You think we’re old fashioned, out of touch, that’s it’s all Captain Cook and flag tattoos”
In the fictional NSW town of Coriole, preparations are underway for the annual Australia Day celebrations and the organising committee are hashing out the details amidst disagreements over politics, patriotism and progress.
Whether it’s angst over a new development, the best snags to serve at a multi-cultural barbie, or the looming spectre of racism, throughout runs the theme of self-censorship: at what point do you abandon the politically-correct stance and say what you really think.
Jonathan Biggins (The Wharf Revue) is one of Australia’s sharpest satirists and he zooms in on the dynamics of small-town society with an unerring eye and ear for the humour embedded in everyday life.
