After the forums, why not hang around and see the Fringe World play: The Various Unfortunate Deaths of T'Abbott and Rue Doch Juniors

From multi-award winning international director Alex Dower (5-star reviews at Edinburgh & Best Director Awards) and starring film actor Andrew Byron (Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, The Monuments Men), Creating Freedom Australia is excited to share a darkly comic piece of theatre examining the political and environmental agenda of the government and large corporations.

The play follows the stories of the descendants of today's leaders as they suffer illness, residual violence and incarceration as a result - or reflection of - the policies of their forefathers.

In the present, plagued by these visions of the future, media mogul Rue Doch starts to question his position of denying Climate Change, but Tiny T'Abbott and Tina Kindheart are challenged by his awakening.

We will have Guest Appearances in the play by Scott Ludlam and Rachel Siewert! Buy Tickets
