About the play:
'Sailing South' by Judith Prior
A comedy romp on the high seas!

At the end of a long day, in an old English court, sentencing petty criminals to be deported to the colonies, The Honourable Justice Eustace McDonald is horrified to learn that his well to do mother, Lavinia, has enlisted him as a Captain in the Navy.
Crewed by a colourful array of prisoners, including Toby the pickpocket; Mabel the cook; 'Ladies of the Night' Charlot and Denise; and Ben, the gullible cabin boy. His Honour's commission, the good ship Venus, sets sail for a rollicking voyage to remember. Anything and everything can go awry with the inexperienced crew and captain. With threats of mutiny, on-board recreation activities, and audience participation, Sailing South is a merry frolic en route to colonial Australia.

The Australia Day Plays have been a major fundraising event for the Redland Museum held annually for over a decade and our audiences keep coming back.

Thank You For Your Continued Support!
