Gone Girls Patrick Livesey & Annabel Larcombe

Julia Gillard and Julie Bishop team up to take down the Patriarchy.

Tearing through the halls of Parliament and the last decade of Australian politics, Gone Girls is a dragged-up, camped-up and very, very well-dressed-up ode to Women in Power, bipartisan wine nights and yes, that speech.

At a time when politics couldn’t be more miserable, this is a drag fantasy of small moments with big impact and the absolute truth of what really goes on behind closed doors in a ladies bathroom...

Destroying everything you thought you knew about these two leading ladies of #Auspol, Gone Girls is an hour of politics like you’ve never seen it before.

The Boys’ Club better be ready.


Thanks to Rosemary Walls, Pinky Watson, Esther Myles & Libby Gilbert for their contributions to the early development of this work.

    “…expect to be entertained. A fun hour of taking a sideways look at our parliament.” ★★★★ 

    - Theatre Guide

    “a cheeky yet decidedly clever comic take on the two mightiest women of Australian politics in our time.” ★★★★ 

    - The Advertiser

    “Raucous one-liners, and dirty tactics you will want to remember and use on your own friends, family, and foes.” ★★★★★
