Hell Ship: The Journey of the Ticonderoga

Concert or Performance

12 Jun 2021 to 13 Jun 2021 Once Only Event

In 1852 the Ticonderoga was a handsome clipper ship with a nightmare hidden in its holds. She limped into Port Melbourne after a nightmare voyage from England in which nearly 200 of her passengers had died of Typhus.

A story almost lost, this is a true moment of Australian maritime folklore. Journey through hopes of a new world, then almost smell the rotting stench of them slipping away. All the time travel the themes of family, of grit and of courage – and love.

A young surgeon is thrust into the role of saving those left – and he did with a dedicated assistant at his side. This man was Michael Veitch’s great-great Grandfather and his assistant, Annie Morrison his great-great Grandmother. For Michael, this is a very personal story.
