Seymour Centre and the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House present: Hansard Monologues: Age of Entitlement in association with Guardian Live.

Duration: 1hr 40mins (including interval)

The Hansard Monologues: Age of Entitlement is theatre at its most real – because it is real.
Fresh from the debates of this Federal parliament, The Hansard Monologues captures and distils the passions and the policies, the characters and the crises of the nation’s discourse into a dramatic, amusing and at times sobering ride through the big issues of our time.

This is verbatim theatre of the moment: the themes of racism, climate change, travel rorts, budget repair, lifestyle choices, asylum seekers and national security are all ready to feature in the final script, which continues to be written right up to performance.

First produced in 2013 as an analysis of Australia under the Labor government, The Hansard Monologues: Age of Entitlement now, in a completely new version, turns its focus to Australian life under the Coalition.

This is a very special theatre experience. In fact, it is as important as its subject matter: us.

“The Hansard Monologues is the perfect example of just how entertaining verbatim theatre can be … exceptionally relevant and important theatre.” Stage Whispers
