Australia's most celebrated playwright has written a new work on the life of the country's most famous son. David Williamson talks to Crikey about capturing the media mogul for the stage.
David Williamson's The Removalists is still a violent, bloody, deeply disturbing portrait of Australia. A new production from Tamarama Rock Surfers does it justice, writes Lloyd Bradford Syke.
