After the huge success of the premiere season during the 2015 Poppy Seed Festival, 15 Minutes from Anywhere’s blockbuster hit returns as The Yellow Wave crashes back over Melbourne’s Butterfly Club.
Nominated for a 2015 Green Room Award for Best Ensemble, Melbourne audiences are being given the chance to revisit this epic story, or join the crush and experience it for the first time.
Based on Kenneth Mackay’s 400-page Australian classic of 19th century literature, The Yellow Wave is a saga of love, heroism, and sacrifice. A prescient tale of war, passion and boat arrivals, this much lauded show features a huge cast of characters, exciting set pieces… and a vast array of questionable accents. It’s an invasion like no other.
15 Minutes from Anywhere is an artistic collaboration between director Beng Oh and writer Jane Miller. They create new Australian works, as well as explore the lesser known and interesting parts of the repertoire.
