Mean­ing of An­zac is brought to life

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL. -

WHAT mean?

One Day of the Year, which will show at the Proser­pine En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre next week, has the an­swer.

For war vet­er­ans like Alf Cook and his friend Wacka Daw­son it’s the chance to com­mem­o­rate his­tory, cel­e­brate hero­ism and con­jure na­tional pride.

For Alf’s son Hughie, An­zac Day flies the flag for a dif­fer­ent re­al­ity, one that brings the dig­nity of our Dig­gers to its knees and into the gut­ter – via one too many at the pub.


An­zac Day

Alan Sey­mour’s land­mark Aus­tralian play re­turns to the stage to in­cite as much pas­sion as ever.

One Day of the Year looks at our na­tional leg­end through the eyes of gen­er­a­tion, class and char­ac­ter.

On the 100-year an­niver­sary of the Gal­lipoli land­ing, HIT Pro­duc­tions brings a thor­oughly fresh take on this truly Aus­tralian clas­sic.

One Day of the Year stars Christine Keogh (Blue Heel­ers, Neigh­bours) and Don Bridges (Fid­dler on the Roof, Man from Snowy River).
