Melbourne-based theatre company, “The One In Five Players” will be traipsing the boards at The Butterfly Club next week, with their re-imagined and recast production of “Who Saved JFK?”.

Under the direction of Emma Buckley, the production explores the largely unreported and unacknowledged story of the rescue of JFK by two Solomon Islanders during WWII. The soon-to-be President’s patrol boat had collided with a Japanese destroyer, leaving the survivors stranded on an islet in the South Pacific Ocean.

“Who Saved JFK?” is a comedic appreciation and depiction of the role of indigenous and non-white soldiers in the Second World War. It is a hilarious and timely reminder that sometimes history needs to be re-written.

The Australian production was co-written by former state MP Neil Cole and Erica Myers-Davis and is a theatrical adaption of Myers-Davis’ book “Under One Flag: How Indigenous and Ethnic Peoples of the Commonwealth and British Empire Helped Great Britain Win World War II”. It stars Ruth Rogers-Wright, Amanda Trapnell, Harlene Hercules and Ariel Simone and features compositions from “mbryo”.

This production will be the third Neil Cole play performed by this cast and crew at The Butterfly Club. The success of their previous seasons led to the formation of “One In Five Players” theatre company.

The Butterfly Club season will run for 5 nights, opening on Wednesday the 23rd of July.
