The Yellow Wave  

The Yellow Wave $20.90 ex GST
$22.99 inc GST

Kenneth Mackay’s 19th century classic Australian novel comes to vivid life on the stage, in an epic saga of love, heroism and sacrifice. The Yellow Wave is a prescient tale of war, passion and boat arrivals.

Soldier of fortune Philip Orloff and salt-of-the-earth Dick Hatten vie for the hand of stoic heroine Heather Cameron against a backdrop of invasion by a pair of Russian rail barons leading a Mongol force into the heart of Queensland.

Armed with sharp humour, this play explores immigration, gender, racial stereotyping, equality and notions of what is ‘other’ or ‘alien’. The Yellow Wave is an invasion like no other.
