2013 Western Australian Heritage Award
Outstanding interpretation project that enhances a place
Rottnest After Dark and Rottnest Open House
The judges said...
"…we roamed the settlement while being informed, in a very enchanting manner, of Rottnest Island’s multi-faceted, culturally sensitive and often times contentious and sad history." Open House and After Dark , something rarely offered in Western Australia is a theatre of moments based on actual people and events, in the most amazing and precious setting. Provocative and entertaining, it resuscitates many personalities that have made Rottnest Island what it is today, allowing them to dwell amongst visitors, momentarily. It makes the audience think, ponder, critique, and in the best traditions of theatre, laugh and enjoy participating in a special journey.
