A2K Media presents

The Wheelhouse

Anarchy, conspiracy, drugs, racism, ableism, disability sex whores, Anti-Vax Karens, cover-up culture, is Peter Dutton an actual potato? Whatever the topic, it’s in our wheelhouse. 
The Wheelhouse: It’s current affairs in high-speed chairs.

Created and produced by stroke survivor Ade Djajamihardja for Australia’s disability-led production company, A2K Media, The Wheelhouse represents A2K Media’s primary mission to bring an authentic representation of disability and diversity to their stories, be they through screen, stage or the written form, which in this case is all three!

Joining Ade Djajamihardja are our cheeky and charming panel of disabled and marginalised maverick presenters Jamie Aditya Graham winner of the 2019 Best Supporting Male Actor at the Asian Academy Creative Awards for his role on GRISSE, an HBO ASIA TV Series, Sarah Barton, activist and award-winning documentary filmmaker, exciting emerging artist Belinda Aitken, and award winning funny gal Madeleine Stewart plus special guests who bring a rich and varied diversity of voices and opinions and with their collective energy and attitudes prove that they don’t just talk the talk, but they also “roll the walk”!

Directed through the keen eye of comedy writer/director - Jason Marion (Spicks and Specks, Hamish and Andy, Rove LiveMICF Award Winner for Best Show (2001))
