The Emu War: A New Musical

From £8.00

Inspired by the true events of The Great Emu War of 1932, this new comedy musical tells the story of WW1 veterans trying to grow wheat in the Australian outback.

Unfortunately, the local emus develop a taste for the crops, so the government sends in the army to fight them.

Spoiler – the emus win.

We follow six characters caught up in the battle. Get your tail feathers ready for some dancing birds, catchy tunes and a bonza tale of human futility. This is The Emu War!
