WAM2014 saw:
The Out of Print Book Club on opening night. Damian Callinan, Rusty Berther, Fiona O'Loughlin  and Andrea Powell critique the greatest books never written, in a show that resembles the ABC's The Book Club meets Whose Line Is It Anyway?
Rusty and Fiona over lunch the next day, telling tales from behind the scenes and breaking the showbiz rule of what-happens-on-the-road-stays-on-the-road!
