1839, Cascades Female Factory, Hobart Town. In a solitary cell, on the edge of survival, a ‘sleek little savage’ waits alone in the darkness. Left for dead, ten thousand miles from home, she plots escape and reveals, with biting mockery, the untold tales of her captors.

In a Green Room Award nominated performance described as ‘fearless’ and ‘nauseatingly exquisite’, Emily Goddard and acclaimed theatre director Susie Dee bring to life a dark, humorous and provocative ‘anti-bonnet drama’, This is Eden ,inspired by the rebellion and resistance of the female convicts of Van Diemen’s Land. This is Eden is at once an examination of our dark past, a parody of the way we perceive it and a vital call to arms. Sit back, relax and be transported.
