First performed in 1942, Morning Sacrifice has since become a classic of Australian theatre. It is set over a three-day period in the staff room of East Haven Girls’ High School in Sydney and exposes the narrow-minded education system of the 1930s. It centres on the increasing bitter struggle within a group of teachers, a mix of conservatives and progressives, over the fate of a senior student accused of immoral behaviour where expulsion will destroy the student’s chance of going to university. A fascinating study in day to day routine which is stripped away to reveal a hall of horrors, built on hypocrisy.
