From the team behind “Australia Votes 2013” at the Sydney Fringe Festival The Year of the Abbott, The Book of Kevin and The (Un)Australian Live are back. Just in time for you know what…
Join Timothy Hugh Govers and Sallie Don as they dissect all the most unedifying moments of the 44th parliament of Australia and examine the performances of our politicians in the 2016 election campaign.
Over the course of the night they will be joined by Australia’s two most recent former Prime Ministers (Jonas Holt and Nathan Lentern) as the two protagonists of the 2013 election explain precisely why they ought to be leading their parties instead.
There’ll also be appearances from Christopher Pyne (Lentern), an exclusive interview with a senior Donald Trump campaign strategist (Umit Bali) and a return of Brent Thorpe’s genius creation, “Deidre Flick” – self-funded retiree from Mosman.
AUSTRALIA VOTES is an irreverent and playful celebration of the eccentricities and paradoxes that dominate Australian political life. With three shows just before – and one magnificently timed for just after – the upcoming federal erection! Please be upstanding…
