THE CAKE MAN

by Robert Merritt

Published in Plays of the 70s Volume 2

This landmark play portrays life on a mission in Western NSW. A simple, moving story which shows white Christian paternalism from a black point of view. The Cake Man was the first play by an Aboriginal writer to enter the repertoire of the white theatre.

Published with notes on Wiradjuri country and memories of the mission where Merritt was raised.
