Lady Gaga is afraid. After accidently giving an STI to the world’s most famous hacker, Julian Assange, she thinks he might vengefully leak the sex tapes. To make amends, she turns up unannounced to the Ecuadorian Embassy with a plan, a plan to help him escape. But Julian doesn’t want a bar of it, not even a swath of her best europop anthems will ease his hurt. But as she refuses to leave and he can’t, deadlock ensues. What follows is a romp of epic pure-pop proportions. And when egos clash so do dogmas. The result: pandemonium.
Gaga V Assange is a new play with songs by William Hannagan, acclaimed writer of HouseWarming (**** The Age) and Until Tomorrow (**** Theatre People). It has been labeled 'fresh, engaging, intelligent' by Theatre Press and 'tragically good' by Assange himself.
