LOOK ALIVE AUSTRALIA. Desmond Chudmore - father, sportsman and an absolute top-bloke of a Prime Minister is looking for a historic third term. However, on election morning his staff find “The Chud” in a sorry state of affairs. Can his crack team of strategists spin a win for their beloved National Democratic Purple Party? Or is it time for opposition leader Paul Punge to prevail and form a long awaited government for the People’s Popular Yellow Party? It’s really all to play for this election season. Come have your say.

SUDS acknowledges that the University of Sydney and the Cellar Theatre reside on stolen land; the land of the Gadigal people of the Eora nation. As a society that exists to tell stories, it is important to acknowledge that stories were being told on this land for thousands of years before British colonisation.
SUDS pays respect to elders past and present. Sovereignty was never ceded – Always Was, Always Will Be Aboriginal Land.
