MIDDLE-EAST PEACE... OR PISS-TAKE?!

Lawyer by day, actor by night, JEREMIE BRACKA brings his hilarious hit one-man political comedy Arafat in Therapy to Auckland for four shows in July. The Auckland shows follow a sell-out season and rave reviews at Theatre Works, Melbourne in 2011... and a repeat season this June at Chapel Off Chapel. Directed by Pip Mushin (Strictly Ballroom) and with music by Tomi Kalinski (former Musical Director to Dame Edna), the show parodies the Middle-East peace process through farce, mockumentary and 'autobiographical monologue. A satirical tour-de-force, Arafat in Therapy
is also a journey through Jeremie's real-life experiences as a human rights lawyer in Israel and at the United Nations! Showcasing more than 20 different characters, this is a-fast paced one-man piss-take on the Middle-East. From U.N. resolutions to CNN, Arafat sends up politicians, peacemakers and human rights campaigners across the political spectrum.

It's also touring around Australia, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem later this year.
Jeremie Bracka trained at the National Theatre School of Performing Arts (Melbourne). Over the last decade, he has portrayed a dazzling array of original characters in his hit one-man comedies: Lox, Shmocks and Two Smoking Salmons
(2005) and Enough About Me...Let's Talk About Jew!
(a hit at New York's Fringe Festival 2007). Jeremie has since delighted thousands of theatre-goers in major arts festivals in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Auckland and New York.
