Why I'm glad I live in a multicultural society


Try and get tickets for this (although it's probably sold out now, and deservedly so). It simply wouldn't work in any context other than an ethnically mixed country, where some immigrant communities have coalesced into virtual ghettoes, keeping alive the traditions of their home country while experiencing clashes with the dominant ethos of their adopted nation.

Years ago, here in Victoria, Australia, a play titled 'Dimboola' (after a country hick town), which was a wedding breakfast, was very successful.
The audience took the place/part of the wedding guests, and the actors were the wedding party and parents.
It was hysterically funny, in a 'with them' not 'at them' way.
