Mandy Bishop

Mandy plays our country’s first female ex Prime Minister, both on screen (ABC TV’s At Home With Julia, Wednesday Night Fever) and stage (the Sydney Theatre Company’s yearly Wharf Revue).

After Julia’s exit from politics, Mandy has continued to play ‘Julia’ for special events and in the theatre. If your event is interested in the current “Julia”, with her various appointments both academic and international, then please enquire to LMCM.

Mandy’s “Julia” is warm, strong, fun, musical and humorous. Her writing team are experienced, award-winning political satirists and playwrights.
