Golden sands, turquoise waters and a lush green golf course — Penny Poulter leads an almost idyllic life in one of Australia’s best kept secrets, Wallis Heads. But when this hidden coastal gem is discovered by the ruthless and immensely wealthy Alex Whittle, ambitious plans to put the town firmly on the tourist map spark a bitter rivalry. Can this human bulldozer with money to burn ever be stopped?
Australia’s most prolific playwright David Williamson steps out of retirement to pen THE GREAT DIVIDE, a new comedy with wise-cracking commentary on wealth inequality and human greed. Featuring Georgie Parker (RHINESTONE REX AND MISS MONICA) and Kate Raison (KILLING KATIE: CONFESSIONS OF A BOOK CLUB), don’t miss this urgent and darkly funny play peppered with Williamson’s caustic wit.
