Competitive Tenderness

10 October 2022 @ 12:00 am - 31 October 2022 @ 12:00 am

by Hannie Rayson

Directed By: Harry Dewar

COMPETITIVE TENDERNESS is an hilarious, over-the-top farce about corruption, blackmail, deception, and debauchery. And traffic. And pet ownership. And all the other fun of local government

Dawn Snow has a fierce reputation – (It’s rumoured she reformed the prison system in Uganda!) Now, with local government reform high on the political agenda, she is called upon to rescue the City of Greater Bourke from the debt burden left by its recently deceased CEO. Time for some outsourcing and downsizing, (and wealth redistribution amongst friends at the expense of the ratepayers…)

First performed by Playbox Theatre in 1996 in a production directed by Aubrey Mellor and starring Max Gillies.
