Inspired by the mythological fable of Hercules stealing Diana's favourite deer, DEANA VP (Vice President) whisks you into a busy pocket of Melbourne’s high flyers living in a hypothetical Australian Republic.

Opening with a quick snippet over a few thousand years ago, in Imperial Rome, DEANA VP is the tale of a modern dysfunctional group of people confronting an age-old conundrum: the dichotomies between genders and sex & power.

Passionate and funny, alternating between humour and suspense, DEANA VP dares to expose the common "behind-the-scene" fierce playing-out of political power at the highest levels, of unscrupulous individuals conspiring and engaging for supremacy and personal gaining.

 

THE PLOT

 

Jupiter (Australia Republic's first President) gives Ercole (Hercules} the task to infiltrate Latona's family (Leto) and steal Deana's heart by marrying her, with the aim of repossessing the usage rights of a huge NLG gas deposit in Western Australia.

Ercole, disguised as his brother Fliko (Iphicles), befriends Deana's gay twin brother Polo (Apollo) and is invited to stay at the family mansion in Toorak, where Deana's best friend Aphro (Aphrodite), a sex therapist and TV raising star, is also a guest.

The undercover plan is suddenly compromised by Latona's surprise revelation of Jupiter's best kept secret, as the situation gets quickly out of hand, with an unexpected twist at the end of the second act.
