Biography

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.

Makassar Reef

Alex Buzo
 

East meets west in this subtle romantic comedy when a handful of tourists and adventurers converge on the ruins of an old Indonesian port. Buzo moves away from satire to examine at a deeper level the ennui and alienation behind the laughter.

Includes an authoritative introduction by Frank Palmos, an Indonesian correspondent and interpreter for the president during the Sukarno era.

Norm and Ahmed

Alex Buzo
 
A rather ocker, white Australian male encounters a well-mannered Pakistani student with revolutionary ambitions in a Sydney park at midnight. Buzo creates an image of race prejudice as a profoundly irrational force in the behaviour of ordinary Australians.
