Performance Season 17 November – 3 December 2022

by Kenneth G Ross

Director: David Austin
Assistant Director: Aaron Evans

During the Boer War in South Africa in 1901, three Australian ‘irregular’ soldiers are tried by a British military court for the murder of 12 prisoners and a German missionary. The accused are Lieutenants Harry Morant, Peter Handcock and George Witton. Morant, an English-born adventurer who has spent years in Australia, maintains he was following the unwritten orders from Lord Kitchener to “kill all prisoners”. However, the killing of the German Missionary may push the Germans to side with the Boers. The trial thus becomes a trial of politics and not a trial of truth.

With the recent trial of Ben Robert Smith fresh in the public mind, the “trial by politics” still holds strong resonance today.
