Tim Burstall’s Eltham Characters

The Memoirs of A Young Bastard
Years before he became one of Australia’s best-known film directors, Tim
Burstall lived with his wife Betty in Napier Crescent, Montmorency. Betty
was also to become famous in her own right as the founder of “La Mama”
experimental theatre. The Burstalls were heavily involved in the Eltham
social scene that included the Montsalvat community.

“Tim Burstall’s Eltham characters” are part of a panel discussion at the next meeting of the Eltham District Historical Society Wed 11 September at the Eltham Senior Citizen’s Centre. All welcome
