Country Relations brings back those not-so-fond memories of family reunions. In a typical country abode, the nagging and overbearing host Mollie Watts makes small-minded observations in nasal country twang. Whilst her browbeaten husband Archibald is generally content to agree apathetically. Archibald and Mollie Watts are not your typical quiet country folk. As Dot the cow launches into labour, Archibald and Mollie attempt to continue with their family event assisted by the ladies from the Country Women’s Association. Archibald is more interested in showing his stamp collection, and Mollie would like to show the family her slides from the Begonia Festival. As the opening speeches continue, family secrets are revealed.



Country Relations was first performed at the Trades Hall in the Annexe Room, Melbourne, on 6 October 1999 with the following cast:


MOLLIE                                    Naomi Lopez

ARCHIBALD                            Adrian Nunes



Archibald and Mollie live in a well-appointed and clean country home. The family orientated interior design has taken Mollie many years to decorate and her pride in housekeeping is obvious to all who visit.  Mollie is in a paddock behind the house, attempting to calm their old, yet prize-winner cow. Archibald attends to the needs of his hungry visiting aunts, uncles, nephews and nieces, ready for an onslaught of lunch.
