AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'That singing, dancing extravaganza, The Wharf Revue, returns with bite for an annual dose of razor-sharp satire and a special blend of side-splitting sketches and musical hilarity.

'The mighty and ridiculous will duck for cover as The Wharf Revue team swoops in for another go at poking politics and popular culture in the eye with its carefully sharpened satire stick.

'At least we can count on the Federal Election for delivering one good news story: the provision of plenty of new material for these talented satirists. They know they can run, but they can't hide - nothing and no-one will be spared! Combining a cast of colourful characters - Eddie Obeid, Ian Macdonald, Cardinal George Pell, Simon Thomson, Tony Abbott, Gina Rinehart, Clive Palmer and Julia Gillard, and Phil Scott's boisterous songs; The Wharf Revue will be packed full of up-to-the-minute satire which makes it such a hit year after year.

'When Amanda Bishop, Simon Burke and Andrew Warboys join Jonathan Biggins and Drew Forsythe on stage it's a guaranteed lark.' (Source: Sydney Theatre Company website)
