A Meeting of Tribes



We were asked by Kylie Graham, a Welfare Officer and Psychologist with the Defence Force to stage two shows of Marooned for the ADF in Melbourne and me along with the cast would like to thank her for her faith in the piece and us. We would also like to thank the General who funded it. It was, for all of us a profound experience – Michael


The set was left bare and industrial.

With great lighting from our Tech

Daryl Newton the play had a real edge to it with darkness all around.

We also discovered our smallest sized stage is 4.5 meters by 4 meters.

What I love the most is watching the actors having to adapt to the new settings.

on Nov 2/3 we’re in Yarrawonga on an enormous stage.

Like always we are still fine-tuning the script, and this is the creative benefit of getting new plays on again and again. 

They are crafted.

And The Verdict

They loved it, the feedback was amazing.

And it was like a meeting of two tribes, indy theatre folk, Us, and the Highest Ranks of The Defence Force coming together to tackle an adversary who doesn’t discriminate. 

What Next?

More Melbourne Shows.

More info on these very soon.
