THEATREiNQ presents Private Ginger Mick – at Gallipoli
Join the many JCU alumni who comprise TheatreiNQ for this Anzac Weekend event…
An adaptation of the much loved CJ Dennis Poems 'The Moods of Ginger Mick'.
PRIVATE GINGER MICK AT GALLIPOLI brings to life all the colourful characters of the original poems including the lovable rogue, Ginger. Written in a long-lost Australian vernacular, this collection of CJ Dennis poems was famously carried in the pockets of the diggers on the battlefield of World War One.
The story follows Ginger from the beginnings, making a living selling rabbits and falling in love with Rose, to answering the call to arms in the Great War and being shipped off to Turkey.
PRIVATE GINGER MICK is a heart-warming story of mateship and a sense of national identity formed amongst battlefields on foreign shores.
