From the minds of Queensland’s own Belloo Creative, this roaringly funny reimagining of an ancient myth is at once a biting political satire, and a timely wake-up call to our home state. Classic tragedy turns hilarious farce in Queensland.

It’s the not-too-distant future, and with a defiant cry of Queenslander!, we’ve broken away. Again. First Lady Phaedra and President Theseus are building a mighty wall along Queensland's southern border to keep the 'filthy' Newies from our gates. When Theseus takes off with the triumphant Broncos on a morale-boosting tour, Phaedra is left alone to run the country and look after Theseus' teenage son, Hip, newly arrived from boarding school. Hip's arrival stirs something in Phaedra she never expected and when Hip's mother shows up on the doorstep, too…well you know what they say about Queensland. Beautiful one day, tragic the next.
