To mark the Centenary of Gallipoli, Alan Seymour’s classic play THE ONE DAY OF THE YEAR—a critically-acclaimed, brilliant and important Australian play—has opened in Britain for its first production in over 50 years. Wayne Harrison, former Artistic Director of the Sydney Theatre Company, directs an all-antipodean cast, including Mark Little, of “Neighbours” fame. The show, originally performed in 1960, is now playing at the Finborough Theatre in Earls Court. The play opened in London ten days ago to excellent reviews. THE ONE DAY OF THE YEAR is about the differing generational opinions towards Gallipoli and Anzac day. The play famously challenged the Anzac legend and Seymour’s take on class, education and family has ensured his legacy amongst Australian writers.
