The Wharf Revue 2015


Riverside Theatre


09 September - 12 September 2015


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

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.

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

“It is truly is a must see.” – Sydney Arts Guide

“It’s like catching up with an old friend for a well-earned laugh.” – Aussie Theatre

“The miracle is that the laughs keep coming” – Stage Whispers
