To be honest, we only saw the first part of this play when we visited Sarah Island, but the cast were so good and into the amazing history we were all mesmerised. Shane we couldn’t get to see the whole play. Next time!

We went to the show after being on the Heritage Cruise and it topped the day off nicely while still being informative. Recommended. 17YO also enjoyed it.

What a hidden gem! Tells a historical story but with hilarious add lib and great audience participation. Best to do a cruise and Sarah Island tour first, as it really sets the scene.

Loved the play, the story, the enthusiasm of the actors (a 2-person play!), and the audience participation. Would highly recommend to all who go to Strahan. A must see!

I'm not normally one to go to these type of events and was begrudgingly dragged by my better half but I'm glad i was. We had a great time with plenty of laughter - goes for about 90 minutes whiched seemed about the right length.

Great play to watch! It was great to see the audience get involved and everyone was having a good laugh. With the play going for around 1 1/2 hours I would recommend this to anyone visiting Strahan.

This show was great. The full house showed how good of a reputation this show has and it's great fun. The improvisation and energy from the actors was great and how they pieced the boat together was great to watch. Getting pulled up on stage...More

Very impressed about the way everything we did in Strahan was connected without any information repeated. This show is so much fun for both adults and kids! Well done, complimentary to the Gordon River Cruise Convict island visit and so interactive. No wonder this show...More

It is just on the wharf in Strahan. In front of where the red boat leaves. You should not need to book. It was busy, but plenty of seating. You can book where you book cruises and train.
