The Table of Knowledge In ‘The Table of Knowledge’, version 1.0 turns its forensic
theatrical vision to the so-called ‘sex for development’ corruption scandal that engulfed
Wollongong City Council in 2008. Using the transcripts of the ICAC Inquiry, the script is
based almost entirely on the actual words of the central characters. This is an utterly
compelling and hilarious interrogation of power, corruption and good governance in
contemporary Australia. Performing at the Portland Arts Centre at 7.30pm.
