A DEDICATED AND IMPASSIONED RETELLING OF AN IMPORTANT SLICE OF AUSTRALIAN HISTORY
TUE 4 - SAT 8 JUNE
Palmerston Projects presents Kokoda
Private Morris Powell is fighting the battle to save Australia, alongside a motley militia of poorly trained young men, plucked off the streets of Melbourne and Sydney. As the Japanese army rampages through the South Pacific in 1942, these soldiers must grapple with courage, endurance and sacrifice, as they rescue their country from invasion.
First premiered on the 75th anniversary of the Japanese army's invasion of New Guinea at the height of WWII, Kokoda has drawn acclaim from both critics and audiences alike, including at its 2018 Edinburgh Fringe season at the Gilded Balloon.
Peter Maddern’s well-crafted script is a dedicated and impassioned retelling of an important slice of Australian history. A hidden gem - Fringe Review
