The people have spoken and no-one has a clue what they’re banging on about.
After a decade of delivering world’s-best-practice satire, the ever-popular Wharf Revue returns in 2010, serving up Sydney’s tastiest smorgasbord of irreverent humour with Not Quite Out of the Woods.
Performances are at Riverside Theatres from September 27 to October 2. In an orgy of pointless recrimination and hilariously ill-informed party-political punditry, The Wharf Revue team including Jonathan Biggins, Drew Forsythe, Phillip Scott and Amanda Bishop present a parade of pompous, opinionated pedants practiced in peurile partisan point-scoring. And alliteration.
Watch in startling 1-D as the heroic Abbottar infiltrates the marginal electorates and becomes one with the Mar’gi, a forgotten race of fringe dwellers who fight to stop the boats and strip-mine the magical forests. Follow Red Riding Hood as she tries to navigate through the factional deadwood, aided by Bob Brown – the woodcutter who can’t cut down anything.
Stumble upon a forest glade, where proud Kristina and her Unpopular Mechanicals rehearse their next charade for the long-suffering citizens of NSW. Follow the Japanese wha – sorry, scientists – as they hunt for the fish John West rejects, when Moby Dick meets the Iron Chef!
Join Sarah Palin for a mad tea party, vote for your favourite dysfunctional economy in the Eurodivision Sovereign-Debt Song Contest or quietly die inside as Mark Latham hosts “Hey, Hey, It’s Yesterday!” Who said fairy tales can’t come true?
