“Sunday Too Far Away” a refelection of a bygone age.

The audience enjoyed “Sunday Too Far Away”, and its portrayal of the Australian way of life 50 years ago. For its time, it was quite a hard-bitten and confronting story, showing the characters, particyularly Jack Thompson’s gun shearer, as uncompromisingly macho, particularly in front of other men. The quote which provided the title was particularly apt: “Friday he’s too tired, Saturday he’s too drunk, Sunday he’s too far way”.
