Award-winning music theatre powerhouse Squabbalogic is pleased to announce key cast members for the brand-new, original Australian musical The Dismissal, which will be making its long-awaited world premiere from 26 August 2023 at Sydney’s Seymour Centre.

The must-see new musical of 2023, The Dismissal tells the epic story of Australia’s most dramatic political event – the sacking of Prime Minister Gough Whitlam by the Governor-General Sir John Kerr on November 11th, 1975 – as told through the eyes of iconic larrikin Norman Gunston, played to uncanny perfection by the irrepressible Matthew Whittet.

With unimpeachable wit, a cracking original score, and a big heart, this ambitious world premiere doubles as both reckoning for the nation’s soul and a sensational night out, stirring audiences across generations and political persuasions.
