The Wharf Revue

When: From Monday 24 October to 5 November, various times
Where: Canberra Theatre Centre, Civic Square London Circuit
Cost: $89.00, book here.

The latest Wharf Revue is about to be unleashed. It’s time for Canberra audiences to receive their satirical booster shots from those Satirists Sans Frontiers, Professor Forsythe, Doctor Bishop, Mr Biggins and Nurse Scott. They will administer the most effective sharp jabs to help build resistance to post-election euphoria and/or depression. Side effects may include uncontrolled laughter, spontaneous applause and occasional nausea. But be quick – tickets will sell out faster than toilet paper.
