“A JOYOUS YARN … TOLD WITH CHEEKY HUMOUR AND LOTS OF HEART” Limelight

Meet the Duncans, a mob as funny as they are unforgettable. Back home on Tassie’s Dog Island for birding season, and the threat of snakes and Pop’s explosive temper, the family reunites with a country and culture still very much alive.

But their long memories and smart-arse streak mean it’s not just the birds sticking their beaks where they’re not welcome. Old secrets are dug from their burrows and fledgling rivalries begin to take flight – it might all fall apart if it wasn’t for the fierce love that holds this bunch together.

Nathan Maynard has crafted a deadly funny portrait of a singular corner of our world. Directed by Isaac Drandic and featuring a stellar cast including Tammy Anderson, Trevor Jamieson and Luke Carroll, this national tour of the original acclaimed production is a raucous and rowdy celebration of tradition and the bonds that unite us.

“…an ebullience and a warmth about it that it utterly endearing.” The Australian
