Party Tricks not just a 2 member party...
9 October 2014 | by leos_monkeySee all my reviews

The main storyline for this six part political drama involves a scandal between Senator Kate Ballard (Asher Keddie) and media personality and journalist David McLeod (Rodger Corser) that threatens to become public in the middle of state election which of the two are running for Premier. On Team Kate is Wayne Duffy (Angus Sampson) as her spin doctor press secretary and Oliver Parkham (Charlie Garber) as her speech writer and close ally, Geoff Ballard(Colin Moody) is her husband and Paula Doumani (Doris Younane) is the Deputy premier and minister for transport. Team David has his Public Relations maven Charlotte Wynn (Ash Ricardo) and his only child teenage Matilda McLeod (Kaiya Jones) who is a social media savvy to help her dad. Then there's Tom Worland (Oliver Ackland) who just happens to be Oliver's live in boyfriend who is the state political reporter that might or might not strain his relationship with Oliver. Writer Michael Lucas of Offspring and Not Suitable For Children has another hit on his resume.
