Stainless Steel Rat by Ron Elisha Directed by Wayne Harrison. 'If we can only live once, then let it be a daring adventure that draws on all our powers.' Julian AssangeIn this daring new play, simple questions are asked. Who is Julian Assange? A bogan with a modem? Or the most consequential revolutionary Australian of our time? How is it possible that a self-educated 'hactivist' from the outskirts of Melbourne, who never finished high school, could change the world and initiate a global chess game in which Barack Obama, Dmitry Medvedev and even our own Julia Gillard are not just key players, but pieces on the board itself?This 'wikiplay', an exposÃƒÂ© on the secrecy of government being destroyed by new concepts of technology, derives inspiration from the words of Assange himself: 'Change the world' through passion, inspiration and trickery!'
