This is Eden

1839. Cascades Female Factory, Hobart Town. In a solitary cell, on the edge of survival, Mary Ford waits alone in the darkness. Left for dead, ten thousand miles from home, she plots escape and reveals, with biting mockery, the untold tales of her captors.

In a tour-de-force performance described as ‘fearless’ and ‘nauseatingly exquisite’, Emily Goddard and acclaimed theatre director Susie Dee (Anthem and Savages) bring to life a dark, humorous and provocative anti-bonnet drama inspired by the rebellion and resistance of the female convicts of Van Diemen’s Land.

Using the same Bouffon-esque performance devices the women used to rebel, Goddard and Dee tread a fine line between the grotesque and humorous to uncover an extraordinary chapter of rebellion and survival that has seemingly escaped our nation’s history books. Winner of the 2018 Drama Victoria Award, This is Eden is at once an examination of our dark past, a parody of the way we perceive it and a vital call to arms.

"As affecting and impressive as anything you will see." Australian Stage
