Centenary of Federation Play Kit
An ICCUP in AustrAlien History
Students take up the compelling challenge of saving Australia from oblivion in this science-fiction play. Smithy (Sir Charles Kingsford Smith) has been propelled through time to the Intergalactic Court of Appeal in the year 2038 to undertake an appeal on behalf of Australia. With the aid of a time-travel-package-tour Smithy can collect significant Australians (the Witnesses) to give evidence supporting Australias appeal. The Witnesses are chosen for their achievements, and each represents one of six themes:
Girt by sea
Golden soil, wealth for toil
Young and free
Back at the Intergalactic Court of Appeal, the Witnesses give their evidence. They relate events selected from their respective themes. The events are episodes of Australian history from the century since Federation that aim to demonstrate that Australia has sufficient cause for pride to warrant its place in the space-time continuum.
