Scenes from the Back of Beyond by Meredith Oakes

Book Description

Bill is sustained by his deep sense of a wider culture and an improving world. The only thing the human race needs to do is learn. When he meets a person who embodies this idea, he naturally likes them. Especially if his wife doesn't. Set at the end of the 1950s, "Scenes from the Back of Beyond" explores the comfort, hopes and fragility of family life in a new Sydney suburb. A production opens at the Royal Court Theatre, London in November 2006.
