A great show, describing a true story and bringing it to life. All three generations of us loved it!

A great 60 minutes of fun and history. It really is a must if you have the chance as it makes light of what otherwise was a pretty serious time and adventure.

Great value

We had a great time! We took our 16 mth old and were worried he may be disruptive but the cast embraced him and gave him a toy and a role in the play and we were able to relax and have a really good time. The set is extremely clever and the play both entertaining and educational.

You can't beat this for historical references, entertainment, engagement of the audience, wit, timing and staging...all in a compact short play. We saw it right after the Sarah Island tour, so convicts and shipbuilding were fresh in our minds. There were a lot of kids in the audience the day we were there and they "played" parts in the most amusing fashion, including one very young girl who was given a headband with ears and told to play a kitty. The timing is good, too, it's for only about an hour and ends just before dinnertime.

Had not done the Sarah Island cruise at the time so didn't realise that these two are the guides from that Island. No wonder they were so passionate and knowledgable about the story. Fantastic experience for ANY age. Had an absolute ball. Highly Recommended. A++++
