Political satire is a significant part of satire that specialises in gaining entertainment from politics. It has also been used with subversive intent where political speech and dissent are forbidden by a regime, as a method of advancing forbidden political arguments where such arguments are expressly forbidden. Satire can be traced back throughout history; wherever organised government, or social categories have existed, so has satire. In this workshop, students will delve deep in current social and political issues and develop a satirical performance.

"In today’s workshop with Clint, I saw my Year 11 Drama students be really pushed to the next level with their understanding of Satire, and the development of their script ideas…His knowledge is excellent, his energy is irresistible, his laughter infectious and the way he inspires the students to take risks in their performances is truly brilliant!"★★★★★
