A community committee in a small NSW country town meets to plan celebrations for the forthcoming Australia Day. With its assorted stalwarts and politicians, long-time residents and unwitting newcomers, they attempt to create the perfect celebration for this most Australian of days.
A laugh out loud, fair dinkum, politically incorrect comedy.
Act1: The committee organises this important event with meetings spanning the 6 month lead up to Australia Day.
Act 2: Australia Day: What can go wrong? A satirical look at country living, committees and our National Day and you will recognise these people and these situations.
