With a life's work dedicated to upholding — and reinstating — human rights and democracy, Geoffrey Robertson has an indisputably impressive resume. The barrister, author and former human rights judge has garnered his worldly insights through defending the likes of Salman Rushdie and Julian Assange and founding the largest human rights practice in Europe. Fiercely defending lives on death row? Mentoring Amal Clooney? Assisting in the restoration of Fiji's democracy? All in a day's work for Robertson.

This August, the legal heavyweight is bringing a special one-night-only revival of his 1980s current affairs show Hypothetical to the stage. Sticking to the small-screen formula, the live show will see Robertson welcome a panel of ten yet-to-be-announced guests to the ICC Sydney stage for a provocative night of interrogation punctuated with wit and humour.

Robertson will take hypothetical questions to his high-profile panel — from celebrities and politicians, to industry experts and judges — exploring the intricacies of their logic with his interrogational expertise.

Whether you're a long-held fan of Robertson and his work or you're simply an inquisitive mind that enjoys thought-provoking conversation, spending a night witnessing this Australian great command the stage is not to be missed.
