Jack Hibberd: Selected Plays  

White with Wire Wheels / Dimboola / A Stretch of the Imagination

Jack Hibberd: Selected Plays $31.81 ex GST
$34.99 inc GST
Three early plays from Jack Hibberd which continue to be performed, studied and read for pleasure. 

White with Wire Wheels (1967)
Hibberd satirises the culture of masculinity expressed in cars, booze and work, a world in which women are marginalised and ultimately disposable. This provocative and unconventional comedy throws a spotlight on a society that can tolerate the intolerable.


Dimboola (1969)
Playfully vulgar, bawdy and boisterous,  Dimboola plays out the wedding reception from hell, with the audience actively playing the roles of the guests. A celebration as much as a satire, the play joyously takes a familiar ritual and turns it uproariously on its head.


A Stretch of the Imagination (1971)
Monk O’Neill, the lonely misanthropist has become an archetype of the Australian character since he first appeared on our stages in 1971.

Also published in   Plays of the 70s Volume 1


Cast : White with Wire Wheels - 3M, 4F (doubling required) / Dimboola - 9M, 7F / A Stretch of the Imagination - 1M
