Venue La Mama, Carlton, VIC
First Date 6 July 1969
Dates Estimated No
Status Professional
World Premiere Yes
Description Playfully vulgar, bawdy and boisterous, Dimboola plays out the wedding reception from hell, with the audience actively playing the roles of the guests. A celebration as much as a satire, the play joyously takes a familiar ritual and turns it uproariously on its head.
