Political spin for Armageddon
“Trees? Gone. Wombats? Going. Fuel? Fossil. Prime Minister? F*cked”
Rising tides and rising temperatures, floods and bushfires; in a time of danger and disaster, one woman desperately attempts to make sense of it all…or at least get a good soundbite. The speech writer of the prime-minister, Bree is striving to speak in a world falling apart before her eyes.
A Region Where Nobody Goes explores what happens when the apocalypse goes viral, and all the ways we’ve politicised staying alive. Bree wants to be remembered, and in a decaying population 24 million strong, she’s running out of options.
Pushed out of blissful ignorance and into transformation, this snappy two-hander imagines the future of Australian politics at a time when uncertainty isn’t just the word of the hour, but of the era.
