Wharf Revue - Celebrating 15 Years

1h 50m Theatre, Comedy, Arts 2016

“The Revue is an equal opportunity satire – no political party is left unstoned, nor cultural shibboleth unmauled.” Stagenoise

Sydney Theatre Company presents THE WHARF REVUE - CELEBRATING 15 YEARS

Written and created by Jonathan Biggins, Drew Forsythe and Phillip Scott.

Starring: Amanda Bishop, Jonathan Biggins, Drew Forsythe and Phillip Scott.

There ain’t no party like a Wharf Revue party.

“What’s so brilliant… is how the material constantly falls between sharp, incisive satire and deliriously cheap gags.” The Daily Review

Over 15 years and 21 shows, they’ve mercilessly mocked all the usual suspects. We’ve watched Howard Tampa with refugees, Rudd give pennies from Kevin, Gillard refuse to be lectured by “that man”, “that man” scrap the carbon tax, stop the boats and – um – get the budget back into surplus… But no one has been able to outplay, outwit or outlast The Wharf Revue. So, we’re throwing a party and everyone’s invited.

This year, The Wharf Revue will be a parade of past and present indignitaries – a who’s who of 21st century embarrassments, from the politicians to the celebrities – all skewered on the stake of seriously side-splitting satirical silliness and musical mayhem.

Who will make the cut? Who has the numbers in the caucus room? It’s anyone’s guess.
