Voices on the Page: David Williamson

Australia, 1986


The “Compulsive Playwright” provides you with a unique insight into the man and his work. His early experience, the problems of writing for film (Gallipoli), lecturing to students on the writing process, and rehearsing with the actors, are all part of this entertaining and informative video. This package has been designed for students of literature everywhere. It has a particular application for students studying senior English at Years 11 and 12 and tertiary institutions. Study guide included.
