“The Golden Holden” by John Romeril.

The APG performed “The Golden Holden” at the Pram Factory theatre in December 1975 and January 1976. Shown here is a 2-page promotional leaflet prepared by the APG. On page 2 of the leaflet is a piece written by John Romeril titled “The Genesis of ‘The Golden Holden'”.

Romeril’s piece touches on the great political turmoil in Australia at the time. On 11 November 1975 the Whitlam Labor Government was dismissed by the Governor-General in controversial/baffling circumstances, and the election on 13 December 1975 was won by the Liberal/National Country Party coalition.
