Murder on the Reef – Documentary + Q&A at Byron Theatre

Thursday 24th January at 6:30pm
Tix: Full $25 | Concession $22
bit.ly/2FBYdi2

There’s no more pressing agenda in global politics right now than climate change and the environment. Yet despite the endless talk about whether or not climate change is real, one of the world’s most breathtaking natural wonders and destination hub for millions of tourists each year, the Great Barrier Reef – is being brought to its knees.

In Murder On The Reef - 2018 Documentary, ex-Chernobyl scientist Dr Allen Dobrovolsky takes us on a compelling journey into the heart of the issue, as he meets with the everyday people and communities who rely on the reef. Speaking with scientists, indigenous leaders, local politicians, tourism operators and mining contractors, Allen discovers a lack of unity between these groups as the underlying cause preventing effective action being taken to restore the reef.

Watch the haunting trailer: vimeo.com/292262755

This is a film about nature – human nature – and its flawed tendency to greed over good, conflict over unification, complacency over action. It reveals how brawling on land has never worked. And above all, it raises urgent questions about how we turn the tide.

A Q&A with the filmmakers, Byron Mayor Simon Richardson, local members and reef scientists will follow the screening.

10% of proceeds are going to the Australian Marine Conservation Society

Presented by AESA Films: aesafilms.com/

The Wharf Revue: Celebrating 15 years - ANT Live Screening at Byron Theatre

Direct from the stage and straight to the cinema screen, Australian National Theatre Live in partnership with the Sydney Theatre Company presents the wildly popular Wharf Revue.

Wednesday 23rd January at 7:30pm
All tix $20 | Ages 15+
bit.ly/2VloWnl

With their 15 years of unrelenting satire outlasting many of the politicians they sent up, The Wharf Revue anniversary edition will present a who’s who of 21st century embarrassments, from politicians to celebrities. Written and performed by Jonathan Biggins, Drew Forsythe, Phillip Scott and Amanda Bishop, the show reminds us of the good, the bad and the downright ugly moments of Australian politics some would rather us forget.

Among them, Julia and Kevin play Phantom of The Opera; Hawke and Keating organise numbers at the nursing home; Gina and Clive sail off on the Titanic; Mark Latham sings an operatic diary and George Brandis slips into a tutu for a biting satirical musical.

Get a taste of what you're in for here: youtu.be/A2Cjz5gZi_I

Filmed live on stage at the STC’s Wharf Theatre, The Wharf Revue: Celebrating 15 years is the perfect opportunity to see the production for the first time or to experience the thrill all over again.

★★★★“What’s so brilliant… is how the material constantly falls between sharp, incisive satire and deliriously cheap gags” The Daily Review

“Biggins’s impersonation of Peter Costello is unnervingly acute and Bishop has ABC anchor Emma Alberici and columnist/foodie Annabel Crabb to a tee. Tony Abbott as Thernadier (singing Leader of the House) in the night’s extended sketch, Les Liberales, is inspired casting.” Sydney Morning Herald

“After 15 years, the Wharf Revue still packs a great punch and in a climate of frequent political shake-ups, may this great Australian Satirical Party only continue!” Deb Meyer J Wire
