In a separate note from Jean Mann to WF Jean makes the following comments:

The play Marion mentions here is The Billabong Circus and it was about to have its world premiere at the Brisbane Arts Centre. Marion need not have worried. Her music was OK, especially for my so-called lyrics ‘Singing Rabbit’ and ‘Possum’ but the play wouldn’t have got first prize although the children loved it.

I flew up from Adelaide and Tracy did the same from Sydney. We looked at each ither after the performance and shook our heads. It needed a re-write, especially in the middle.

This play continued to be staged across Australia. WF
