From the grim educational pickings of working-class Port Adelaide in the 1950s and 60s, the multi-faceted writer, actor and artist Bryan Dawe escaped high school at 15 and went on to become one of Australia’s finest satirists.

A Satirist’s Journey is a highly amusing and deeply poignant story of Bryan’s journey into political satire; the creation of his two much-loved characters Roly Parks and Sir Murray Rivers QC, and his 30 year relationship with the political satirist, the late John Clarke.

This event takes place in the gallery space alongside the  majestic Maryborough Railway station’s recently refurbished cafe.
