A Happy Family

The Society’s first Australian play was a production of A Happy Family by Bundaberg-born playwright Vance Palmer, directed by Rhoda Felgate with herself and Jean Trundle in leading roles.

This production marked the beginning of Brisbane Repertory’s support for Queensland writing, support which it found difficult to sustain and which suffered long periods of neglect, but would eventually became a powerful feature of the future La Boite’s repertoire.
