HELL SHIP: Journey of the Ticonderoga by Michael Veitch
Friday 22 May

Her saga of tragedy, loss and heroism gripped the people of our young nation like nothing before. Michael Veitch performs his one-man show from the perspective of the young ship’s surgeon (Veitch’s great-great grandfather) who bravely nursed many sick passengers back to health. A dark story told utilising Michael’s wry sense of humour.
