ALEX BUZO (1944–2006) was born in Sydney and educated at the University of NSW. In the late 1960s his early plays
Norm and Ahmed, Rooted and
The Front Room Boys pioneered a revival of Australian theatre.
Macquarie and other historical plays such as
Big River and
Pacific Union have helped to popularise the themes of individual and national maturity. Buzo's books
Tautology, The Longest Game, The Young Person's Guide to the Theatre and
A Dictionary of the Almost Obvious confirm his reputation as an important recorder of modern idiom.
