Griffin Theatre Co presents FAMILY VALUES by David Williamson

A celebrated federal judge. His son a born-again Christian. His daughter a Border Force officer. Her partner, the captain of a Border Force ship. His other daughter a left-wing activist. His wife, who has worked all her life to keep the family together. Saba: an asylum seeker on the run from Nauru. On the eve of his birthday, it is too much to expect his wife and three children celebrate with him?
For 50 years David Williamson has shown us the best and worst of ourselves. A blackly comic drama situated squarely on the fault lines that divide Australia. The play asks us to choose freedom over reputation, empathy over franking credits, to abandon a deeply flawed system for the sake of humanity.
