Squabbalogic and the Seymour Centre will present the pre-world premiere of a brand new Australian musical, The Dismissal, centred on one of the biggest political crises in Australian political history from June 18th to 22nd.

In 1975, the unelected Governor General and representative of the Queen, Sir John Kerr, sacked the democratically elected Labour Prime Minister, Gough Whitlam, and installed Liberal leader Malcolm Fraser in his place, causing Australia’s biggest constitutional crisis.

Written by Jay James-Moody and Blake Erickson, with music and lyrics by Laura Murphy, The Dismissal promises to be the biggest political event of 2019. The all-star cast includes Matthew Whittet as Norman Gunston, Justin Smith as Gough Whitlam, Marney McQueen as Sir John Kerr, Andrew Cutcliffe as Malcolm Fraser and a powerhouse ensemble which includes Blake Appelqvist, Georgie Bolton, Christian Charisiou, Jodie Harris, Monique Salle and Bishanyia Vincent.

Award-winning music theatre powerhouse Squabbalogic brings the dark intrigue, larrikin humour and larger than life characters of The Dismissal to the stage in this vibrant, exuberant and rage-filled new Australian musical.
