the other end of the age scale, the playwright
Tony Laumberg is not much older than Clift and
his mates were when they went off to war.
An emerging talent whose CV lists lawyer, stand-up
comic, radio and TV performer and screenwriter,
Laumberg has already had three screenplays optioned
and received a swag of grants from the Australian
Film Commission and the NSW Film and Television
Unsolicited Male was his first play.
It premiered at Darlinghust's Tap Gallery last
August. Essentially a comedy of manners, it
sees ambitious young lawyer William trying to
impress his boss over dinner when his scruffy
dad arrives unannounced - and decares he has
left his wife.
Until Sunday. The Edge Theatre, corner King
and Bray Streets, Newtown.
Tuesday-Saturday, 8pm. Saturday & Sunday,
