From the Epilogue, Katsehamos and the Great Idea.
"I..met Nancy MacInnes, who was born a McTaggart in Bingara in1936, the year the Roxy opened. 'Those old Greeks had as vision', Nancy told me, 'They built a beautiful theatre with cafe and guesthouse. They saw people coming to Bingara from the country, having a nice dinner, going to the theatre and then staying overnight. What a civilised idea that was for the time.'
