From Working Dog, the iconic team behind classic Australian films such as 'The Castle' and 'The Dish', as well as TV series 'Frontline' and 'The Hollowmen', comes a hilarious political satire about global power and the fumbling hands that hold it.

Air Force One is London-bound for a surprise Christmas meeting between the US President and the British PM. It will be a diplomatic coup, not to mention one hell of a media opportunity - a no-risk vote-winner for the price of a little jet fuel, and the chance for the Leader of the Free World to give the speech of a lifetime.

Yet with the seatbelt signs barely switched off, what appears to be a major international crisis begins to unfold. As the stakes rise and the clock ticks, the President and his advisors are forced to make some uncomfortable decisions. Boasting a stellar ensemble cast featuring Jane Harber, David James and Toby Truslove, 'The Speechmaker' promises to be an exhilarating stage debut from one of this country's most successful creative groups.
