Set in an Australian country town biscuit factory during World War II, the play shows how
the all-female cast of factory workers fight to save the factory, run a ‘Mum’s Army’ Civil
Defence Unit, put on a show for the War Effort and cope with the fact that two thousand US
airmen have just been stationed outside town!
Dinkum Assorted is a poignant and comical piece of theatre- full of laughter, tension and
comradeship. It depicts a small slice of Australian social history.
