The Yellow Wave

Theatre and Physical Theatre • Comedy

A 19th century classic of Australian literature comes to life in 75 action-packed, fun-filled minutes. The Yellow Wave: a romance of the Asiatic invasion of Australia is an epic saga of heroism, passion & boat arrivals. With a huge cast of characters, Mongol hordes, questionable accents, just two actors & a narrator, it’s an invasion like no other!

Praise for the Melbourne Season:

"So many levels of hysterical." The Plus Ones
"A laugh a minute journey..." Theatre People
"The Yellow Wave certainly had the audience laughing almost without pause for its entire length... Don’t miss it." Stage Whispers
