HOW TO VOTE! by Julian Larnach 

710 September 2022 


Election season is upon us! When the incumbent President of the University Student Council mysteriously steps down, new players must enter the arena. But behind the three-word slogans and noncore promises lies an underbelly of secret deals and divided loyalties, corruption and ambition; all designed to win the hearts and minds of the student body. 

Following an entire election cycle within a prestigious university, How To Vote! explores the treacherous political landscape of campus life, and what happens when you put the word student before journalism, politics and theatre.

Commissioned by Canberra Youth Theatre, this world premiere whip-smart political comedy is set in an election year (topical!) in a city thats definitely not Canberra (its totally Canberra!). 

Featuring a massive ensemble cast of university-aged artists, How To Vote! smashes together Secret City and Sex Education in an epic exploration of power and what it takes to wrestle it from your enemies cold, dead hands all while scraping through your end-of semester exams.
