Books Info:

Make it Australian free pdf The Australian Performing Group, or APG, helped to bring about a profound change in Australian theatre and nurtured the talents of a generation of writers and performers who have become household names including Max Gillies, David Williamson, Graeme Blundell, Jack Hibberd, Sue Ingleton and Grieg Pickhaver (aka H G Nelson). Yet to date the only published full-length accounts of the group have been written by former members. "Make it Australian!" gives an outsider's view of this influential group and the social, political and cultural context in which it operated. Through its observation of the personalities, conflicts and ideologies embedded in the APG, it challenges myths, reveals paradoxes and investigates divergences between the professed aims of its members and what the group did. This is the first critical history of APG and the book traces the group's development from its beginnings at La Mama Theatre in 1968 through its flowering at the Pram Factory and to its demise in 1981. It draws on interviews with key members, reviews of productions and an analysis of significant plays.
