O'Neill's plays, famous for gazing into the darker side of humanity, while laced with humour, are no stranger to South West theater goers, and with his plays receiving standing ovations, such as his heart wrenching 'Under Any Old Gum Tree', based on the life of Collie man and Victoria Cross winner, Martin O'Meara and his politically stirring 'The Trial of John Boyle O'Reilly, based on the Irish poet and political prisoner who escaped from Bunbury on an American whaler in 1869.
