Synopsis: A good-looking young Australian tourist, Brett, meets a much older French widower, Jacques, in a Paris café. Two lonely men with bisexual tendencies. The play opens the following morning in Jacques’ bedroom, with Brett, just out of the shower, searching for his underpants. Jacques’ daughter, Elodie, and the young man’s mother, Madge, soon come on the scene. The mother sets her sights on the Frenchman, and his daughter is attracted to the rugged young Aussie. In Act 2, the French father and daughter visit the Australians in the Pink Palace hotel, Oodnadatta (pop. 350), in central Australia. After a rough cross-country ride, both need a soothing liniment applied to their bottoms; Madge has to soak her feet in water to remove her 25-year-old wedding shoes; breakfast consists of witchetty grubs & honey ants (an Aboriginal delight); and there’s the threat of the camels, Gladys and Mary, crapping all over the floor of the Pink Palace living-room. However, a happy ending for one and all conclude the play.
