Was not really expecting such a great show however it more than met what we anticipated. A must is to do the tour of Sarah Island first to fully understand the whole story. The principal actor was our tour guide on Sarah Island and together with the play completely brought the tale to life. The actors were absolutely top rate,... More

You first meet Kiah on the World Heritage Cruise as a guide on Sarah Island. Very engaging, jovial and informative part of the cruise. But that is not all. You must meet her and the crew after the cruise at the theatre on the foreshore for an hour and a half of a hilarious historic journey and learn some more... More

Entertaining performance based on historical fact was a nice rounding out for the visit, earlier in the day, to Sarah Island which, as well as its convict connections was also a significant builder of ships from the local Huon pine.

This is a play that is acted out every night at 530 pm from September to May. It's great fun and had great audience participation. It's only $20 per adult $15 concession. I haven't laughed so hard for years.

Didn't know what to expect. After spending a day cruising the Gordon River, to sit back and watch this fun-filled stage production completed a brilliant day. So much fun, so much energy and such an incredible story delivered in such a unique way. Sadly, this is a part of Tasmanian and Australian history which is not told in schools. Why... More

These 2 guys put on the GREATEST show, with minimal props, great story telling, lots of audience participation and plenty of cleverness! The audience, aged from 4 to 84, was totally engaged from the start to the finish. I don't want to give it away. You've just gotta go!
