The Major Minor Party is a new theatre show that examines the minor parties that make up our political landscape.
Commissioned for Canberra’s Centenary, the highly entertaining and thought provoking world premiere of version 1.0’s The Major Minor Party, opens at The Playhouse from 29 May to 1 June.
The Major Minor Party explores the realm of the minor parties in Australia and asks who really represents us in the political world? With the Australian Sex Party as a launching pad for an investigation of civil liberties, version 1.0 explores marriage equality, voluntary euthanasia, abortion, censorship, sex education and the separation of church and state.
Considering how many of our readers enjoy politely discussing politics I would assume this show should be of interest to many of you.
Reflecting on the production’s role within CTC’s Collected Works Australia centenary season, version 1.0 asks 100 years after Canberra was founded to become a “city bearing a resemblance to the city beautiful of our dreams,” if the nation’s capital has lived up to its mantle? The result is a media and performance spectacle densely interweaving irreverent hilarity and sobering seriousness. Employing their highly innovative theatre?making techniques, version 1.0 invites you on a wild and eye?opening ride through the
Australian political landscape.
Centenary of Canberra and Canberra Theatre Centre present the world premiere of version 1.0’s The Major Minor Party at The Playhouse from 29 May to 1 June.
