But I Wouldn't Want to Live Here

Season Commenced 21th, October 1967

at the Phillip Theatre Sydney

Starring Gloria Dawn, Ruth Cracknell, Lyle O'Hara

Directed by Peter Batey

written by John McKellar - Self-mockery has always been part of the Australian psyche, but John McKellar developed it into an art form. The title of McKellar's revue A Cup of Tea, A Bex and A Good Lie Down entered the vernacular, along with such titles as I Wouldn't Want to Live There and Is Australia Really Necessary?

Such satire became a glorious tradition, peaking perhaps with the Mavis Bramston Show of the 1960s, levelling at a lower altitude with today's Chaser's War on Everything. McKellar's musical revues from the 1950s to the 1970s also gave a start to or significantly helped the likes of Ruth Cracknell, Gordon Chater, Noel Brophy, Noel Ferrier, Reg Livermore and Jill Perryman.
