Tasmanian Theatre Company presents

Tasmanian Theatre Company presents Shearwater by Margaret Davis

The World Premiere of a new Tasmanian Play by Margaret Davis.

About this Event

As teenagers Colin and Jeannie live on a rundown farm in Tasmania’s Midlands and are forced into an alliance in order to protect their younger siblings so they build a fortified shelter to stay safe.

Fifty years later, a massive storm washes up a lone shipwreck survivor on an island in the Bass Strait offering a last chance to free Colin and Jeannie from the legacy of their past.

Interweaving two timeframes, Shearwater is a tour-de-force for two actors playing characters aged both 14 and 64.

Directed by Jane Longhurst

Designed by Jill Munro
