1st Overland Lecture for 2003
Renowned historian and social critic Humphrey McQueen examines the
'ratcheting up' of the pace of life within modern society.

His lecture, 'Making Capital Tick', follows on from his ground-breaking
and very successful study of Coca-Cola, an archetypal corporation of
contemporary capitalism. McQueen moves into a consideration of the
demand for longer and more intense working hours facing most people
today. He mounts the provocative argument that this intensification of
labour is an inevitable and necessary feature of a society in which
different 'capitals' must compete against each other in order to

Intriguing personal and cultural implications follow from this analysis.

CANNIBAL FARM - a play by Alex Barker
A Comedy Festival Show
Revolution, Burgers and Contradiction! Competition is fierce in the
fast-food industry. An inter-franchise profit war has broken out and
meat supplies are critically low. In reponse, the McRussalds staff seize
control from their tyrannical manager in a communist coup! But how do
they hide the evidence?

Cannibal Farm is a manic satire that pays homage to George Orwellís
Animal Farm, Clerks, Delicatessen, The Smurfs, Macbeth and many many
more. Featuring all your favorite socialists and special-guest starring
Death as himself.

Written and directed by Alex Barker, Cannibal Farm re-works the greatest
social-experiment of all time . . . in a sesame-seed bun.

After returning from an exciting season at the WA Fringe Festival,
Cannibal Farm will make its home state debut at the Melbourne
International Comedy festival.
