One of the world’s great minds challenges Australians and explains what is happening in and to the world when Geoffrey Robertson QC brings It's No Longer Hypothetical to QPAC on August 23 and 24, 2022.

The current affairs show, live on stage, is a provocative, insightful, and witty evening with international human rights judge and barrister Geoffrey Robertson QC. 

Geoffrey Robertson will analyse current Australian and global politics, the current international turmoil, explain how fake news distorts democracy, what is really happening to the royal family, and his calls for Australian constitutional regeneration. 

He'll also discuss what is happening to Julian Assange, how to stop the rich from inheriting the world, and the thinking behind ‘Bad People - and How to Be Rid of Them.’

Join Geoffrey for an enlightening evening as the barrister, author and one-time host of Geoffrey Robertson’s Hypotheticals on the ABC, gives insight into his life and famous cases and his crusade to restore cultural property from museums around the world from whom it was stolen.
