Breaker Morant

May 5, 2016 @ 11:00 am - June 5, 2016 @ 10:00 am

In South Africa during the Second Boer War Australian Army lieutenants Harry “Breaker” Morant Peter Handcock and George Witten stand accused of the murders of six Boer prisoners and the assassination of a German missionary. British Commander-in-Chief Lord Kitchener is determined to see the men found guilty, which he can then use as a bargaining chip in an impending peace conference with the Boers. Though they acted under orders, they are being used as scapegoats by the General Staff. During his lifetime, Harry “The Breaker” Morant became a popular hero through daring feats of horsemanship and for the bush ballards which he regularly contributed to The Bulletin and other papers. His court martial and subsequent shooting by the British sparked a huge controversy in Australia. Controversy which still rages to this day, and which may never be resolved.A Play by Kenneth G. Ross & the Lilydale RSL
