Synopsis
 

A comic drama that pulls no punches.

“I had imagined we’d get together and reminisce about the good times, completely forgetting that there weren’t any.”

Roger is a retired federal judge.

On his birthday all he wants is a low-key celebration with his wife and three children. But when one of his daughters, a left-wing activist, brings home an asylum seeker on the run from Nauru, old resentments start to resurface.  At this family gathering, their values are laid bare. Politics, religion, sex — no topic is off the table.

For 50 years, David Williamson has shown us the best and worst of ourselves. A darkly comic drama situated squarely on the fault lines that divide Australia. Family Values is Williamson at his best: furious that his generation has retired from defending the socially compassionate values on which they claim to have built this country.
