The Lost WW1 Diary by Damian Callinan

The Lost WW1 Diary by Damian Callinan

Country Arts WA

After successful seasons in Melbourne and Perth, comedian Damian Callinan is returning to regional Western Australia, with The Lost WW1 Diary – a clever witty piece where he leads the audience into the pages of a found WW1 diary bringing the characters to life.

Obsessed from a young age by the Anzac legend and intrigued by the mystery surrounding the identity of two diggers from a family photo, Damian sets out on a quest to put names to the faces. Whilst holidaying in Warrnambool, the discovery of a war diary in an op shop finally links him to the legend.

Callinan combines detailed research, hilarious but believable characterisations, black humour, absurdity and deft writing to swing the mood of the story from rollicking farce to aching pathos in a heartbeat.
