Michael Veitch writes and performs a one-man show of an historical maritime event never shown on stage before. In 1852, the emigrant ship Ticonderoga limped into Port Melbourne after a nightmare voyage from England in which nearly 200 of her passengers had died of typhus. Her saga of tragedy, loss and heroism gripped the people of our young nation like nothing before. Michael Veitch will perform his one-man show from the perspective of the young ship's surgeon who bravely nursed many of the sick passengers back to health.
