The Ishmael Club is a new play about Melbourne Bohemians in the early
1900's. It is the story of the intense friendship between artists Will
Dyson, Norman Lindsay and Ruby Lind. These artists gather at Mrs
Maggia's cafe where garlic, red wine and impromptu theatrics keep the
night at bay. The cafe is home to the Ishmael Club - the outsiders club.

Melbourne has long exhibited an argumentative spirit, a tradition of
fiercely frank speaking, a delight in no-holds-barred having-it-out in
public. The audience will recognise the debates about art, morality and
politics vividly brought to life in The Ishmael Club because they still
rage here today.

Written by Bill Garner & Sue Gore, Directed by Denis Moore, Performed by
