Combining old-fashioned storytelling with contemporary puppetry and miniature sets, The Riddle of Washpool Gully by David Morton is a reimagined tale of Australian mythology about the incredible creatures that might still live in the uncharted corners of our vast country.
Far beyond the outskirts of the big city, near a tiny town that nearly everyone forgot, lay a dry creek bed of no special significance. Once upon a time it had been called Washpool Gully. But the world had moved on from insignificant things, and no one had time for dry creek beds. Except in Washpool Gully something was stirring. Shaken by the rumble of engines and darkening of the sky, something long asleep had decided to wake up.
The Riddle of Washpool Gully was first produced by Terrapin in association with Dead Puppet Society at Backspace Theatre, Theatre Royal, Hobart, from 13 April – 21 April, 2018.
