THE TABLE OF KNOWLEDGE

A VERSION 1.0 AND MERRIGONG THEATRE COMPANY CO-PRODUCTION PRESENTED BY CARRIAGEWORKS

THE TABLE OF KNOWLEDGE

In February 2008, the independent Commission Against Corruption began investigating allegations of corruption involving local developers and former staff of Wollongong Council. Exposing sexual obsessions, envelopes full of cash, and a secret cabal of powerful men that met regularly around a plastic table outside a local kebab shop, the resultant scandal culminated with the sacking of the entire Council. version 1.0 turns its forensic theatrical vision onto this scandal to produce a hilarious and compelling interrogation of power, corruption and good governance in contemporary Australia.

‘The play is often wildly funny, so improbable is the mire of greed and lechery, and yet every laugh is another nail in the coffin of the council’s probity… this is vital, engaging theatre that serves an invaluable function in helping to purge the canker.’
– John Shand SMH 2011
