The Visitors - Princess Theatre, Launceston

Two first nations people, are dressed in formal western suits, with their faces painted in ochre.
Theatre North presents The Visitors, a Moogahlin Performing Arts & Sydney Theatre Company Production by Jane Harrison directed by Wesley Enoch On a sweltering day in January 1788, seven clan leaders gather on a sandstone escarpment overlooking the harbour. The attendees, six of them Elders and one new initiate, catch-up, laugh together, share a meal and compare notes. But beyond the friendly banter, protocols, and hospitality, a momentous decision is waiting to be made. A mysterious fleet of giant nawi is amassing in the harbour and as they creep closer, these seven representatives must choose unanimously: whether to send these strangers on their way or welcome them. After its Sydney Theatre Award-winning premiere production at the 2020 Sydney Festival, Muruwari playwright Jane Harrison’s The Visitors is a brand new production directed by one of Australia’s most celebrated directors, Quandamooka man Wesley Enoch. Co-produced by Moogahlin Performing Arts and Sydney Theatre Company, The Visitors is at once a riveting, deeply researched insight into one of the most impactful and painful days in Australia’s history, and a hugely entertaining study of how communities respond to change and the unknown. The Visitors is part of the Theatre North 2024 Season program.
