This is Eden

1839. Cascades Female Factory, Hobart Town.

In a solitary cell, on the edge of survival, a sleek little savage waits alone in the darkness. Left for dead, ten thousand miles from home, she plots escape and reveals, with biting mockery,the untold tales of her captors.

In a performance described as ‘fearless’ and ‘nauseatingly exquisite’, Emily Goddard and acclaimed theatre director Susie Dee bring to life This Is Eden, a dark, humorous and provocative ‘anti-bonnet drama’ inspired by the rebellion and resistance of the female convicts of Van Diemen’s Land.

As affecting and impressive as anything you will see. ~ Australian Stage
