What an amazing and entertaining way to spend the evening.
The two actors did a brilliant job to entertain and amuse the audience, successfully engaging the entire audience.
We laughed and cheered and clapped and played along for a great time.
Thoroughly recommend it.

We had read reviews about the show and decided this time that we needed to go.
It was fantastic! We were engaged right from the start after rugging up under blankets and taking in the set.
The performers were funny, on point and entertained us for the entire time.
I usually dread audience participation, but this was handled so well that soon everyone was singing along and secretly hoping to be part of the show.
It is a must do in Strahan and some of the best value for money at only $25 a ticket!

If only history class is school had been this entertaining. The story is true(ish) and gives a glimpse into the convict history of this area. A small theatre allows everyone to get in to the act and be thoroughly entertained. Definitely worth the time if you’re on the west coast of tassie.

If I could rate this higher I would. This production with some comedy is the best live production I have seen. With a cast of 2 and audience involvement this show was better than brilliant. Show goes for 90minutes $20 with concessions. I would have paid doubled to watch this. Great family entertainment. This is based on a true story of convict survival. .
