Event Description

Full Description:
Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble presents The Blood Votes, a play by Michael Futcher, directed by Associate Professor Rob Pensalfini.

World Premiere Season: 7-11 November 2018, 7.30 pm Wednesday – Saturday
Sunday Matinee, Remembrance Day 11 November, 2.00 pm

The Australian home front debate over conscription at the height of WWI was complex, emotive and deeply challenging for a young nation. A new play, The Blood Votes by acclaimed playwright Michael Futcher, dramatises the events of 1916-17 as they unfolded in Brisbane and captures the passions and dilemmas of the time. Based on historical research, using authentic historical speeches and documents, The Blood Votes is a unique theatrical interpretation of this compelling moment in Queensland's history.

The performance season is generously supported by a Queensland Government Anzac Centenary ‘Lasting Legacies’ grant (round 6), awarded to The University of Queensland, with additional support from UQ’s Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.

Tickets: Adult $35 and Child/Concession $28.
