A sparkling revival of David Williamson’s finest comedy Fade in. Sydney in the 1980s. The Emerald City of Oz, luring unsuspecting idealists with the promise of fulfilled fantasies, and leaving them with their dreams shattered on the pavement. Colin is a one-time gun screenwriter who’s off his game these days, and his wife Kate is a publisher with a penchant for taking risks. Seduced by the scent of success, they move their family to the Emerald City in pursuit of a share of its fame and fortune. Colin teams with a hack writer to work on his pet project screenplay, but soon finds himself faced with a stark choice: make art or make a motza? Decades after it was written, David Williamson’s 1987 classic is as sharp as ever; a satirical skewering of the extravagance of yesterday that could have been written today.

Welcome

David Williamson has chronicled Australian voices and hearts for 50 years. Lee Lewis Artistic Director

Each of his plays is a little time capsule in which he captures rhythms and thoughts of the day allowing us to remember who we were and where we have come from. Having just directed the newest of his works, Family Values, it is a real delight to begin my life with Queensland Theatre immersed in one of David’s greatest plays, Emerald City, as Sam Strong and his wonderful team breathe new life into it. Horrific and hilarious, this play is a chance to look back on the ideas and ambitions of Australia in the 1980s. David’s characters make us realise just how far we have come since the decade when we won the America’s Cup to the sound of Men At Work’s Down Under. His wonderful words conjure up memories we thought we’d forgotten, not only of terrible perms, but of hopes and dreams we all had for the future of this country. As the land we love is being scorched beyond recognition, this play is a reminder that our culture is hived in our stories not our houses. As Queensland Theatre celebrates 50 years of bringing Australians together to tell stories, it is perfect that the first play of the season is from one of our greatest playwrights. The growth of the Company over 50 years has been extraordinary, and as we join with Melbourne Theatre Company to create this glittery production we celebrate how theatre is one of the greatest ways to create and sustain communities in a time when so many forces seem intent on driving us apart. It is a huge community that has come together to make this work possible, but special thanks must go to our production partners Griffith University and Ord Minnett. Without their support, their belief in words becoming stories, becoming plays, becoming our history, this season would not be possible. Welcome to Emerald City. Welcome to 2020. Welcome to looking back in order to dream a better future. Lee

Director’s Note

What better way to celebrate Queensland Theatre and David Williamson’s joint golden anniversary than with a fresh look at one of his finest plays. Sam Strong Director

Emerald City has all the qualities that have made David Australia’s favourite storyteller. There are vivid and colourful characters who are gifts for actors. Then, David plunges those characters into pivotal moments of crisis or change. Then, he piles on the challenges, and we cringe and laugh as we recognise ourselves writ large on stage. Emerald City also displays David Williamson’s peerless ability to speak to our times as well as across time. His breakthrough play The Removalists unforgettably dramatised the toxic masculinity and police brutality of the 1970s. Yet its examination of abuse of power rings just as true in 2020. So too, Emerald City dissects the culture of excess and entrepreneurialism of the late 1980s. But it also interrogates a much more universal theme of personal integrity. At its broadest, this is a story about the struggle to do the right thing – to be a better human – in the face of temptations to do the opposite. There is also something else going on that is unique to this play. Beneath the 'glittering surface' of Emerald City is the beating heart of a very real partnership between Colin and Kate. In a perhaps ‘unguarded moment’ (to quote another artist of the 80s), this play gives us a very candid and moving portrait of a creative marriage. So, Emerald City is perhaps an even more fitting celebration of everything that David and Kristin Williamson have given to the theatre over the years. I, for one, am very grateful to them both and have loved the chance to add my voice to the chorus of celebration with this production. Sam

Art vs Money

Anniversary


Brisbane, Emerald City and fifty years in the theatre I’ve had a very fortunate and exciting 50 years in the

theatre. Amongst my great memories is the opening night of Emerald City in Sydney, which still ranks as one of the

best nights in my career, so I’m delighted that Queensland Theatre decided to mark my 50 years with its revival, with the talented Sam Strong bringing it back to life. David Williamson Writer

Russell Goldsmith, Ella Gordon, Sam Strong, Jess Keepence, David Walters, Travis Dowling


The biggest kick for a playwright, as well as the most nerve-racking, is finally seeing those words you put on paper come to life in a vibrant production and palpably connect with an audience. That’s what any playwright does it for. Not the money, or the fame, but that moment when you know you’ve added something to the life experience of those people watching your work. The truth is it’s been a dream run with some 55 of my plays being produced here and abroad, often with multiple productions, and I’ve been blessed with most of the best actors and directors in Australia working on my scripts over that time. I don’t claim to have written stories that resonate with all Australians. My reflections on life have been mainly stories of middleclass Anglo Celts. As I finish my career, I’m delighted to see the plethora of new writers exploring the lives of other Australian groups and identities. It’s as it should be. And I rejoice to see this new and vibrant work on our stages. I have, however, never believed that my particular tribe didn’t warrant their stories being told, and as I start to read through my work again after many years – and despite the fact I’m often described as writing comedies – I’m struck by the fact that what I’m reading isn’t really comedy, it’s drama; which, as in life, has its blackly funny moments. Without that leavening of humour, sometimes life would be hard to bear. Even in Emerald City, which does have its share of blackly funny moments, these are real human beings facing real human dilemmas – sometimes with the emotional stakes high. And to tell the truth, those conflicts and choices weren’t a million miles away from some of my own and my family’s experiences when I drove from Melbourne to Sydney all those years ago. My wife, Kristin, did find it all uncomfortably close when Robyn Nevin, playing Kate, said to her during rehearsals “I’m playing you again.”

True, the stakes in my plays aren’t the searingly high stakes that face people on the verge of starvation or annihilation in war-torn arenas, but despite the headlines every day, the majority of humanity isn’t on the edge of starvation or facing imminent death. Yet even so, those of us who live in relative security still manage to suffer agonies when we’re snubbed or belittled, when we fear losing the love of our life, when we let ambition consume our lives, when we’re in the grip of virulent envy, when we’re obsessed with wreaking revenge, when we feel the ache of compassion over the misfortune of others, or just when we’re feeling the acute guilt of being bad parents. We’re all highly emotional creatures with more or less the same set of emotions that allow us to relate so strongly to Greek dramas written thousands of years ago. And I’m glad we are all too often in the grip of these ancient emotions, or there wouldn’t be much colour in our lives and there wouldn’t be any drama to write about. And writing about those emotions playing havoc with the harmony of our lives is what I’ve been doing all these 50 years, and loved doing it. So a sincere thank you to all the hugely talented people who have honoured me by bringing my words to life, and thank you in particular to the audiences who have continued to come in numbers and gain something from my labours. And it’s great to be back at Queensland Theatre where so many fine productions of my work have been done over my career. David Williamson
