Australian premier performance of An Unlikely Alliance: the Green Bans Battle was staged at Woodford Folk Festival 2011 over three nights. Standing ovations at the performances confirmed its success. A stellar cast of Peggy Seeger, Cloudstreet (Nicole Murray and John Thompson), Sandy McCutcheon, Ann Bermingham and Helen Rowe presented words and song to celebrate a most important chapter in Australia's history: the Green Bans of the 1970s, led by Jack Mundey. The script and direction was written by Dale Lorna Jacobsen. The songs were by Denis Kevans, John Dengate, Bob Fagan, Kate Fagan, Peggy Seeger, Ewan McColl. The poems were by Denis Kevans and Ralph Kelly. The performance formed part of the Flames of Discontent programme at the Woodford Folk Festival.
