Gone Girls

Gasworks Arts Park proudly presents

Gone Girls
Written and performed by Patrick Livesey and Annabel Larcombe

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

The Boys Club better be ready.

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 quick-witted drag fantasy cleverly spotlights the truth of what really goes on behind closed doors in a ladies’ bathroom.

Written and performed by Patrick Livesey and Annabel Larcombe, Gone Girls is the hour of politics you’ve never seen before and always needed. With past rave reviews neatly lining the pockets of their well-pressed blazers, this limited season is working incredibly hard to destroy everything you thought you knew about these leading ladies of #Auspol.

A vital and recognised Arts Hub in Melbourne’s South, Gasworks Arts Park contributes to the creative evolution of arts and culture in the beachside suburbs and beyond. They create and present quality visual and performing arts programming, cultural activities, and community events. Gone Girls is one of the many in-house produced shows by Gasworks Arts Park, highlighting the crucial and ongoing support for local artists and new Australian work provided by the organisation.

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