Patricia Cornelius is a celebrated Australian playwright who writes about class, love, capitalism and the cruel things we do to each other. Her plays include LOVESavagesSHITDo Not Go Gentle and Who's Afraid of the Working Class?

In this conversation, Patricia tells me about her working class upbringing, her journey through feminism to Marxism, her time in the radical Melbourne Workers Theatre and reflects on whether today's middle-class and staid theatre can still be a voice for class-conscious politics.

Also we revel in the joy of some filthy swearing.
