About this event
Julie Bishop and Julia Gillard rose to the top of #auspol until it all came crashing down. They may have left politics, but that doesn't mean they're over it.
This drag revenge fantasy tears through the halls of Parliament and the last decade of Australian politics, taking a sledgehammer, an axe and a vial of poison to the Patriarchy and its army of red and blue ties.
United by rage. Spurred on by revenge. Men ruined their dreams, now they will kill everyone.
From award-winning theatre-maker Patrick Livesey comes this explosive satire about #auspol, misogyny and getting what you deserve. Canberra has it coming...
