Cabaret Show! A Strong Constitution with Shortis and Simpson
Friday 10 July, 6.30pm
Saturday 11 July, 2.30pm and 4.30pm
In true Shortis & Simpson style A Strong Constitution is informative, entertaining, funny and poignant. Join this musical duo as they explore the language, stories, cases, and implications of the work of our founding fathers. Sections of the Constitution are sung in all sorts of styles- reggae, rock ‘n’ roll, torch song, samba, and more.
And what’s more, it will be performed metres away from where the original document sits at the National Archives.
