An Interim First Draft of a Proposed White Paper On the Sub-Committee’s Preliminary Findings From an Initial Non-Binding Enquiry into THE STATE OF THE TASMANIAN ECONOMY
A comedy by Jonathan Biggins
10 – 12 September 2015
Jonathan’s Biggins is one of Australia’s sharpest political satirists, and this wickedly funny comedy of all things Tasmanian was a hit of the Theatre Royal’s 2014 season.
Comic delight and near disaster ensue when two middle-ranking Tasmanian public servants are enlisted to solve the state’s financial woes. In a tight ninety minutes, amid the plastic ferns and whiteboards, Max and Steve muddle through a parade of nutty rescue schemes, pedaled by tree changers and AFL tragics, backpackers and blow-ins, and even a mysterious stranger.
Biggins’ satire is spot-on punchy, and brims with affectionate Aussie good humour. This is laugh out loud comedy about ... us!
