Sydney Independent Theatre Company presents

directed by Julie Baz
Sex, secrets, scandals -
a tale of democracy in the land of the long weekend.
Set in the legislature of a fictitious modern democracy, Friday explores the challenges and necessity of political engagement. The play highlights democracy’s precarious and precious nature. It explores the personal and political, and the paper-thin division between the two. It delves into one of the greatest tensions in modern society: public responsibility versus private desires.
An exploration of power and engagement, hopefully funny and a little heartbreaking.
The play is also about power; who holds it and what they’ll do to keep it. It’s Julius Caesar meets David Hare’s Pravda and Gethsemane, with a dash of Yes, Minister.
13 August – 7 Sept
Old Fitzroy Theatre
