Harry Macarthur has worked hard all of his life. Since his wife died he has lived alone in a big house with a big backyard and a big shed. Today is his 70th birthday, and he’s invited his neglectful offspring around for a barbecue. Harry’s son and daughter are clearly more interested in their future plans for the property than in their father’s birthday…but things are not quite what they appear to be.

This is a rollicking comedy about life, greed, family and second chances.

A note from the author: “Budgie Smugglers of the Murrumbidgee is a confronting, semi-autobiographical dramatic work of significant historical, environmental and multicultural relevance, which I wrote on the back of a placemat at the Maccas on Mamre Road on a wet Tuesday morning. I had a bugger of a cold so I thought, well why not? I haven’t had a single sickie this month. At the risk of sounding immodest, I take a great deal of personal satisfaction in knowing that in the entire history of Australian theatre, there is no other play with this title. I also took great care to choose a relatively short and renewable title so as not to contribute to climate change or the destruction of the native habitat of the Peruvian Monkey Frog. Bringing my script to life in a theatre is going to be an exciting challenge for everyone involved, not least because of the pickle stains.” - WG
