Liquid Amber

A golden wedding celebration (that goes wrong) and an audience participation play like Dimboola. Written in 1981, the play centres on the matriarch Ruby Strap and her husband, the not so patriarchal Jock Strap. They are joined by six of their motley family, and other bucolics. Most of the characters contribute to the comic chaos, while a handful attempt to re-establish social order and face, but fail.

Liquid Amber was published by Penguin Books in 1984, along with Dimboola, written 1981-2.
