Since its first burst on the Australian stage in 1971, Don's Party has become widely recognised as one of David Williamson's finest comedies. Set during an election night party, Don's guests pursue the rituals of courtship and sexual competitiveness as a means of coping with the insecurities of their own empty lives. Williamson's brilliant satire examines a society on the threshold of emerging from a generation of comfortable, conservative political and social values (2 acts, 6 men, 5 women).
