Writing a Play about War: Paul Levy talks to Peter Maddern about Kokoda








Paul Levy talks to writer Peter Maddern about Kokoda.

“With the Japanese army rampaging through the South Pacific in 1942, the battle to save Australia is being fought along New Guinea’s infamous Kokoda track by a motley militia of poorly trained young Australians plucked off the streets of Melbourne and Sydney. Todd Gray is one of those heroes, Private Morris Powell, and we join him in the battles and the lonely wet nights, hearing his story of courage, endurance, mateship and sacrifice – the making of the men that rescued Australia from invasion and turned the Pacific war. “
