Dubbed 'a tale of democracy in the land of the long weekend' FRIDAY is set in a fictitious democracy, in which the line between the personal and political is seemingly non existent;
"Given the series of tumultuous political events in Australia in recent times, Giorgi's funny and at times heartbreaking examination of the challenges and necessity of political engagement is both timely and very relevant," said Julie Baz, director of FRIDAY and co-artistic director of SITCO.
This razor sharp political satire is incredibly timely given the current state of Australian politics and the upcoming Australian federal election and is sure to engage its audience with its poignant commentary on 'public responsibility versus private desires'.
