The Convict Theatres of Early Australia 1788-1840 -by- Robert Jordan. Australian Theatre. The first

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
