AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'What will we remember about the 43rd Parliament of Australia? That it was supposed to be about us – but was it really just about them?

'As the election nears, this verbatim play will take the words of Hansard, the factual record of what our MPs say in parliament, to relive the highs and lows, the `ayes’ and `nays’ of our national discourse.

'In the tradition of The Vagina Monologues, 'The Hansard Monologues: A Matter of Public Importance' will let our MPs speak for themselves.

'This is the story of how our country makes itself, over and over again. It’s about us.' (Source: Seymour Centre website)
