The twentieth anniversary of Stephen Sewell’s classic political thriller set post 9/11.
Someone must have been telling lies about Professor F for, without having done anything wrong, he was arrested one fine morning…
Myth, Propaganda and Disaster in Nazi Germany and Contemporary America is the story of a controversial Australian academic in a paranoid America. The Twin Towers have fallen and the seeds of fascism are being sewn. Professor Finch is haunted and hounded by a mysterious and violent far right wing monster that only he ever sees.
“Robert Reid is to narrative drama what the Big Bang is to the Book of Genesis.”
– Eight Days interview, The Weekend Australian Financial Review
This production is playing alongside the sequel by Robert Reid, ‘Myth, Propaganda and Disaster and the Heirs of America’. See Both plays together on the weekends.
