After sold out seasons in Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide, The Drowsy Drivers are venturing further afield. Historically accurate* and independently verified by skimming through Don Watson’s book, it’s the simple and time honoured tale of an Australian political superhero and his battle against assorted mugs, dummies, dimwits, gutless spivs and scumbags. Come share in the heady rise, tempestuous reign and tragic fall of the Placido Domingo of Australian politics.
GASP! as Hawke ignores the Kirribilli agreement! THRILL! as Prime Minister Keating sticks it to the drones opposite! CHEER! as he wins the sweetest victory of all! HISS! as the evil Howard betrays his colleagues in his thirst for power! SCOFF! at the blatant historical revisionism! Folks of all political persuasions are welcome (though some will feel more welcome than others). You’ll have the time of your life!*
"Keating! is brilliant. Smart, funny and performed with snotty insolence”
