Hell Ship: The journey of the Ticonderoga

By Michael Veitch

Michael Veitch writes and performs a one-man show of an historical maritime event never shown on stage before.

In 1852, the emigrant ship Ticonderoga limped into Port Melbourne after a nightmare voyage from England in which nearly 200 of her passengers had died of typhus. Her saga of tragedy, loss and heroism gripped the people of our young nation like nothing before. Michael Veitch will perform his one-man show from the perspective of the young ship’s surgeon who bravely nursed many of the sick passengers back to health. A dark story but told utilising Michael’s great ability to capture the human aspects and always find some small thing to attach a wry sense of humor to when required. The clincher – the surgeon was actually his great-great grandfather, James William Henry Veitch .

Venue – Civic Theatre, Chandos Street
Date – Thursday 25th March 2021
Doors Open – 6.00pm
Show Starts – 6.30pm
Target Audience – Adult 18 +

The Queen isn’t listening, and she orders The Hunter from her palace to take Snow White into the forest and leave her there… forever!
