The all-singing, all-dancing, side-splittingly funny solution to all the world’s problems, Sydney Theatre Company’s The Wharf Revue 2019: Unr-dact-d, returns for another year of satirical genius to selected venues across Australia.
The West is crumbling, democracy is besieged and the world is run by morons with funny hair. You have to laugh. The West is crumbling, democracy is besieged and the world is run by morons with funny hair.
Written and created by Jonathan Biggins, Drew Forsythe and Phillip Scott, The Wharf Revue will once again dig through the year’s political dirt and unearth comedy gold.
From the movers to the shakers, from the winners to the losers, the stage will be filled with uncanny impressions of the year’s most memorable characters and the moments they’d prefer to forget.
Stalwart performer Drew Forsythe returns with special triple-threat guests including the hilarious Simon Burke, Lena Cruz, Helen Dallimore and Andrew Worboys. The choreography is tight, the wigs are loose, the punchlines are loaded. Everything is ready for a big night of laughter and mayhem.
Co-directors: Jonathan Biggins and Drew Forsythe Featuring: Simon Burke, Lena Cruz, Helen Dallimore, Drew Forsythe, Andrew Worboys Musical Supervisor: Phillip Scott Musical Director: Andrew Worboys Designer: Charles Davis Lighting Designer: Matt Cox Sound and Video Designer: Ben Lightowlers
