Damian finds an old diary in a Warrnambool op shop. Is Paddy Callinan the mysterious digger his family never speak of?
‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ meets ‘All Quiet On The Western Front’ as the three-time Barry nominee brings the page’s characters to life and finds it’s a long way to Tipperary without GPS.
Obsessed from a young age about all things ANZAC, Damian routinely circumnavigates all regional war memorials in search of diggers bearing his name. Finally he finds the diary that connects him to the Legend!
Callinan breathes life into the subjects of the diary, combining detailed research, hilarious characterisations, black humour, absurdity, and deft writing; swinging the mood of the story from rollicking farce to aching pathos in a heartbeat.
