The Great Divide
Australia’s most prolific playwright, David Williamson, is emerging from retirement to present his latest play, The Great Divide, at Ensemble Theatre from 8 March to 27 April.
Directed by Mark Kilmurry and featuring a stellar cast including Georgie Parker and John Wood, the play promises to be a clever and comical commentary on wealth inequality and human greed.
The Great Divide unfolds in the picturesque town of Wallis Heads, not unlike Williamson’s current hometown Noosa in Queensland. Penny Poulter enjoys an idyllic life until the ruthless and immensely wealthy Alex Whittle arrives, sparking a bitter rivalry that questions the consequences of wealth and ambition.
