• "John Henry Romeril was born 26 October 1945 in Melbourne, and educated at Bentleigh West State, Highett State, Brighton Technical and Brighton High Schools, Melbourne. He graduated with a B.A. Honours from Monash University in 1970, majoring in English Literature and Politics. Romeril is a playwright, screenwriter, lyricist, adaptor and dramaturge, and is one of Australia's most prolific writers. He wrote his first four plays before graduating from university; was a founding member of the Australian Performing Group (APG) and worked with the group first at Cafe La Mama and later at the Pram Factory, Melbourne, from 1968 until their demise in 1981. He writes for a living and has worked continually in Australian theatre, radio, television and film. From 1974, he has been playwright-in-residence with a number of theatre companies and tertiary institutions throughout Australia and at the National University of Singapore. He was Artist-in-residence at the Victorian Arts Centre and Dramaturge at the Victorian College of the Arts. Professional and amateur theatre companies have produced Romeril's plays throughout Australia and overseas. His plays are often based on current events, e.g. Australian-American relations, the constitutional events of 1975, elections, social and labour problems, war and social conflicts, and contain a strong social message. His work is a product of theatre, occasion, situation and community, is consciously experimental and often produced in workshop community-based conditions."—Manuscript Finding Aids -- Academy Library, http://www.lib.adfa.edu.au/speccoll/finding_aids/romeril_john.html, accessed September 17, 2008.
