The political stage

Take one ambitious politician, add an ex-journalist trying to remake his career, sprinkle liberally some left-wing green extremism, and shake.

The result? North Coast playwright Bob Tissot’s new play Radio Active.

The play is a change of direction from his previous pantomimes and historical works.

“I thought I’d have a go at something a bit grittier than trolls in the forest or a princess shipwrecked on an uncharted island,” Bob said. “And God knows there’s plenty of grit in politics.” (Is that grit or dirt, Bob?)

A political coup in Australia and violent green extremism are just a couple of the issues touched on in Radio Active to be performed by the Nimbin Players at the Nimbin School of Arts (Nimbin Town Hall) next Thursday, Friday and Saturday, December 3-5, at 8pm.

Tickets are $15/10 and can be booked at Nimbin’s Perceptio Bookshop on 6689 1766.

Freebie: The Echo has a double pass for this show to give away to some lucky reader. To go in the draw to win phone 6622 2888 between 10.15am and 10.30am next Monday, November 30, and tell us if climate change is a) real, b) sort of real but nothing to do with us, or c) a scare-mongering tactic by lefty greenies who will kill our babies.
