This collection, introduced by John McCallum, includes three previously unpublished works:
A Brechtian musical reinvention of Louis Stone's novel of the same name.
A political drama set in Darwin during the Indonesian invasion of East Timor.
Takes a class-based look at 'Australianess'.
The three title above are published together with Romeril's best-known play -
The Floating World
The story of a returned serviceman's descent into madness on a cruise ship bound for Japan.
Romeril's writing conveys the immediacy of the times that stems from his beginnings as an agitprop writer, but he focuses on everyday lives. The plays in
Damage explore the twentieth century stresses and strains, the damage we do and the damage done to us.
