STU­DIO, tonight, 7.30pm ★★★★ Geoffrey Rush has won awards and ac­claim for his han­ky­dan­gling theatrics in a long list of stage pro­duc­tions. Rush and his con­tem­po­raries, how­ever, would be nowhere with­out the ef­forts of those who pi­o­neered the lo­cal the­atre move­ment. This doco looks at the chal­lenges faced in stag­ing Aus­tralian pro­duc­tions. Play­wright David Wil­liamson says cul­tural cringe has long been a prob­lem and there was a time it was con­sid­ered be­yond our psy­che to as­pire to cre­ativ­ity.
