"It is an exciting and dynamic dramatic experience, not to be missed."
Tim Bowden, Author

It's January 1834. The Frederick, the last ship built at the convict settlement of Sarah Island in Macquarie Harbour, is about to sail for the new prison at Port Arthur. Ten convict shipwrights have other ideas. So begins the story of an amazing escape, an extraordinary voyage and an intriguing twist in the tale of The Ship That Never Was.

The Ship That Never Was is a live professional theatre production, performing in Strahan since January 1994, written by Richard Davey and produced by The Round Earth Company.

The play tells the dramatic and hilarious true story of the Great Escape from Sarah Island! Delightful family entertainment not to be missed!
