For some politicians sexuality is just another game…

From David Atfield, award-winning creator of ‘Scandalous Boy’, comes an explosive new play that looks at the post marriage equality political world and questions just how welcome LGBTIQ people really are in the corridors of power.

Canberra 2018. As a debate rages over a proposed education program to teach children about sexuality, two male federal ministers contend to become Prime Minister. But they both have secret lives that threaten to destroy their careers. When a handsome young staffer enters the scene, their worlds descend into a whirlpool of hypocrisy, blackmail, deception and sexual intrigue.

‘Exclusion’ is a sexy, funny, moving and wildly sensual play combining the complexities of human sexuality with ambitions for power. We see politicians stripped naked, literally and spiritually, as the characters betray, expose and manipulate each other, identities tumble, marriages fall and alliances break. The play is about the complex intersection of the personal and the political, woven into a universal story about the personal compromises we all make in the pursuit of our careers.

‘Exclusion’ will be the talk of the town this November and a theatrical event not to miss!

Featuring Craig Alexander, Tracy Bourne, Ethan Gibson, Fiona Victoria Hopkins & Michael Sparks
