'The State Theatre Company of South Australia celebrated its 25th year in June, 1990.  A Singular Act takes the reader from its earliest days as a modest initiative of the Australian Elizabethan Theatre Trust to the present where it stands as one of Australia's most distinguished theatre companies.
Peter Ward had been closely associated with the development of the company since the beginning, as journalist, theatre critic and government adviser.  This book is more than the story of a great theatre company; it is also a social portrait and a cultural history of Adelaide.
