NEW TASMANIANS tells the poignant, humorous and uplifting story of the Europeans who migrated to Tasmania after the second World War. In exploring the universal journey of the migrant, it presents numerous iconic moments: the voyage out, the migrant camp, initial misunderstandings in the school and workplace, and the transformation the migrants themselves make to the character of Tasmania.
Originally written as an adjunct to a museum exhibition, NEW TASMANIANS is easily adapted to performance in any space, with a cast that can range in size from 3 to 30.
