The story of Burke and Wills as told through the ghost of forgotten companion John King was thoroughly enjoyable experience tonight.
Told predominately by a very capable Simon Storey through a very creative narrative; bringing not only John to life, but also Burke, Wills, Charlie Grey and their beautiful horse Billy. I found myself completely invested in a tale I believed I knew (but definitely didn't) due to a highly imaginative production.
The use of lyrical text, humorous exposition, visual set pieces, and poignant sound choice left me engrossed, joyful, dismayed and even a little tearful.
Well done to the Storey Players for creating such a great piece of theatre
