Heretic - Melbourne Theatre Company 1996
by David Williamson
Heretic is a 1996 play by Australian playwright David Williamson.
The play explores cultural anthropologist Derek Freeman's reaction to Margaret Mead's famous book Coming of Age in Samoa. The play takes place in Freeman's dream, where individuals (including Mead) from his life return and discuss his life.The play was directed by STC director Wayne Harrison in 1996, and starred Elizabeth Alexander as Mead and Robyn Ramsey as Derek Freeman. However, after its opening night at Sydney Opera House, a row erupted between Williamson and Harrison about the director's interpretation of the play and almost overshadowed the play itself.
