Australian Theatre. The first theatrical performance in Australia was George Farquhar's 'The Recruiting Officer', performed by the convicts of Sydney Cove to celebrate the birthday of King George III. Robert Jordan brings the shadowy figures who created this performance and other early entertainments to life, revealing that they were not the initiative of soldiers and settlers, but of hard-living, quick-thinking convicts; here is a society creating its own rules, and its own class system based on enterprise and opportunism, in which justice was arbitrary and nepotism rife. Previously unknown theatre ventures are revealed, and we meet a gallery of entertaining characters. A substantial appendix provides research material on 42 convicts and soldiers known to have been active in the theatres before 1800. (University of Hertfordshire Press.
