THEATRE – The Last Continent – Bakehouse from Sept 19

Unseen A3 poster high resThe Last Continent”


Adapted for the Stage and Directed by Pamela Munt


“Dead is only for once, but running away is forever”

“Discworld is a world and a mirror of worlds, but this play does not mirror Australia. No, it’s about somewhere entirely different which just happens to be, here and there, a bit Australian… worries, right?” – Footnote.

The Last Continent is under construction using all the left over bits and pieces from other continents. Basically it is being held together with spit. If this is not a big enough problem, there is also something going on with the space/time continuum. Probably something to do with those pesky wizards at the Unseen University.

The Last Continent needs a hero. Preferably one who can eat a pie floater even when he is sober. Yep it’s our old friend Rincewind, the inept wizard who can’t even spell wizard, but he’s the only hero left. Still…No worries, right?

Here is what some of the reviewers said about our 2009 production:-

  • “Thanks to Munt’s magical script, The Last Continent is a rib-tickling satire and a tongue-in-jowl spoof on Australia that’s fabulously funny and well worth seeing more than once.”   –   Stephen Davenport – Australian Stage Online.
  • “…..the overall feel is something like a cross between Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Harry Potter….Following a Tolkien-esque hero’s journey….. a great night out”  – Samantha Bond – Independent Weekly
    • “….very sound laughs and  good solid performances…..The opening night audience enjoyed themselves noisily” – Ewart Shaw – The Advertiser

    • “..There is never a dull moment…..Cultural icons, in deviant and hilarious reconfigurations, appear at irregular intervals, from Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, to the invention of Vegemite, nothing is sacred…. (you) will not want to miss this production” – Barry Lenny – Glam Adelaide
