A detailed piece of the South West’s incredible history will be bought back to life with the Stark Raven Theatre Company’s production of Wollaston: A Man and a Mission.
The stage play centres on clergyman John Wollaston who arrived at Bunbury in 1841 and found the colonial government would not pay him until he found a church and his journey to build a church at Picton with his sons.
Adapted from Wollaston’s own personal diaries by playwright Norm Flynn, the show will be a historical journey.
Flynn has three major productions to his name and has won the South West Drama Festival award for one act plays and the Shorelines award for monologues.
Flynn is a poet and prose writer who is noted as a South West historian and book editor.
Wollaston is directed by Andy King who has worked freelance in theatre for the past forty years as an actor, director, script editor and a West Australian Academy of Performing Arts tutor in performance and improvisation.
Experienced South West performer Tony Martin and Bunbury Musical Comedy Group performer Sigari Luckwell will portray John and Mary Wollaston with music provided by Bunbury Cellist and WASO member Jess Brittain.
Wollaston: A Man and a Mission will be performed at Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School on Friday, at November 11, 12 and 13.
