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. .

All of my friends who had been to Strahan said the play is a 'must do' so we bought our tickets (concession prices) at the information centre next to the amphitheatre. Such a hilarious production with the fabulous actors as well as those audience members chosen to play a part. It's not painful if chosen as it is usually a fairly passive role (or maybe not).
We had previously heard the story of the escape, but the play brought it all to life. It's just another piece of Tasmania's penal history. This long running play of 24 years is not to be missed.
