A tree-changing couple try to make an old building a home. A pack of Cub Scouts on summer camp are terrorised by a ghostly matron. A returned soldier seeks aid for his sick son. An unjust trial sentences two Nyoongar men to death.
Set in and around a single old abandoned hospital, York moves through time to uncover the buried histories we have built over. Traversing four different eras, this daring new work sheds light on how our stories are told – and who tells them.
Inspired by 200 years of real accounts, York is a collaboration by Ian Michael and Chris Isaacs.
Light-hearted ghost stories and harrowing hauntings collide in this intergenerational production that includes Shareena Clanton (Wentworth), Alison van Reeken (Summer of the Seventeenth Doll) and introducing fresh new WA talent from WA Youth Theatre Company.
