'The Gold Coast. Glamorous, sophisticated, a sun-drenched paradise. But beneath the coconut oil lies a hot-bed of crime. Everyone from drug smugglers and bikie gangs to radical eco-extremists and the person who invented frozen yoghurt. In order to tackle this seedy underbelly police authorities established a special unit. Known as “Pacific Heat”, this covert squad of highly trained operatives technically does not exist (although, for tax purposes, they do have an A.B.N.) but when there’s a crime that simply must be solved the ‘Pac Heat’ team will be there. Unconventional, uncompromising and with an arrest rate second to none, these guys are not afraid to operate outside the law – provided at least one of them is wearing a fluorescent safety vest.'

1 4 The Speechmaker Santo Cilauro , Tom Gleisner , Rob Sitch , 2014 single work drama

'From Working Dog, the iconic team behind classic Australian films such as The Castle and The Dish, as well as TV series Frontline and The Hollowmen, comes a hilarious political satire about global power and the fumbling hands that hold it.

'Air Force One is London-bound for a surprise Christmas meeting between the US President and the British PM. It will be a diplomatic coup, not to mention one hell of a media opportunity – a no-risk vote-winner for the price of a little jet fuel, and the chance for the Leader of the Free World to give the speech of a lifetime.

'Yet with the seatbelt signs barely switched off, what appears to be a major international crisis begins to unfold. As the stakes rise and the clock ticks, the President and his advisors are forced to make some uncomfortable decisions.

'Boasting a stellar ensemble cast featuring Erik Thomson (Packed to the Rafters) as the President, as well as Offspring’s Lachy Hulme and Kat Stewart, The Speechmaker promises to be an exhilarating stage debut from one of this country’s most successful creative groups.' (Production summary)
