At last, Kenneth Mackay’s 400-page Australian classic of 19th century literature comes to vivid life in 75 action-packed minutes.

An epic saga of love, heroism and sacrifice, The Yellow Wave is an invasion like no other.

The Yellow Wave is a prescient tale of war, passion and boat arrivals featuring a huge cast of characters, a vast array of questionable accents, just two actors and a very patient narrator.
Nominated for a Green Room Award (Best Ensemble 2015)
