Richard Davey

Richard Davey served an apprenticeship in theatre in Sydney and Adelaide, and worked as Artistic Director of the Hole in the Wall Theatre (1969-71) in Perth WA where he also established The Round Earth Company to tour outback areas. Between 1976 and 1980 Richard and his family worked around the world in North America, England, Scotland and Europe before settling in Tasmania in 1980 with a plan to produce a series of plays relating the story of this island community. Other projects - the direction and management of the Zootango Theatre Company 1986-92 among them - have distracted somewhat from that aim, but the Tasmanian story has inspired many of the plays he has written and produced;
BROKEN DREAMS(1983); TELL 'EM YOU'RE MAORIS (Put Your Boots On) (1982); THE SHIP THAT NEVER WAS (1984); HALLELUJAH LADY JANE (1984); GUARDING THE PERIMETER(1986); A CRY FROM THE HEART (1986) and HOOK'S MOUNTAIN.
