POLITICS and the 2016 & 2017 seasons.
The theme for Red Phoenix Theatre’s 2016 & 2017 seasons is POLITICS.
We are extremely proud and excited to bring you five fabulous Adelaide ‘premieres’ which all revel in exploring a political theme. The plays represent an eclectic mix of biting satire, hysterical comedy, and brutal political outcomes.
In line with the Red Phoenix Theatre vision, these wonderful works written by some of Australia and the world’s greatest playwright promise a fresh and dynamic theatrical journey.
2016 is the 400th anniversary year of
Shakespeare’s death and finally we
have the Adelaide premiere of this gripping tale of lust, murder and revenge. It’s his bloodiest play.

It’s a comical disaster just waiting to happen!

THE WHITE HOUSE MURDER CASE
A Presidential election is pending. The USA is at war with Brazil. A darkly satirical and hysterically funny political thriller!
AUG 9 -19, 2017
In a fictional country, the government invents
a fake conspiracy to justify military force,
censorship, and torture to preserve their
democratic ideals. Outrageously funny!
