Description It's election night 1969. Don's been handing out how-to-vote cards. The Libs have gotta go. Don and Kath are having a few friends over to celebrate, or commiserate. Either way they'll drink. Too bloody right they will. Politics is quickly dispensed with as the booze and lechery kick into gear, the women provoke or stay silent as Don and his mates argue, flirt, drink, flirt some more, drink some more, brawl, get caught on the job - and it's only then that it start to go wrong. A blistering Australian comedy classic, this is the play that put David Williamson on the map.
