…and other creepy stories of the sea

A life at sea is all Able Seaman Jack ever wanted, and The Widows Delight seems like a grand and sturdy ship. All these whispers of a curse are surely just superstition…

The historic HMAS Diamantina becomes the vessel for dark comedy, live music and never-before-heard ghostly stories of the sea.

Act/React is the company behind “Speed: The Movie, The Play” (Brisbane Comedy Festival 2015), “Titanic: The Movie, The Play” (Brisbane Comedy Festival 2016), “Let Them Eat Cake” (Anywhere Theatre Festival 2017) and “Love/Hate Actually” (Wonderland Festival 2017).

“A clear festival highlight…clever comedy all around.” – Blue Curtains Brisbane
