In its ongoing commitment to home-delivering the arts to our community, Frankston Arts Centre will present Hell Ship: The Journey of the Ticonderoga via livestream this month. 

Australian actor Michael Veitch, pictured, tells the story of his great-great-grandfather James William Henry Veitch’s voyage from England to Melbourne aboard the Ticonderoga in this one-man theatre piece that is scarily relevant to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

A quarter of the Ticonderoga’s almost 800 passengers and crew died of typhus during the  crossing, and it is said that schools of sharks followed the ship all the way across the Indian Ocean as the victims were hastily buried at sea. By the time the ‘fever ship’ reached Melbourne in 1852, the Ticonderoga was forbidden to come into port and was forced to anchor near Portsea, where her remaining passengers were either nursed back to health or allowed to die. James Veitch healed countless sick passengers and lived to leave a legacy through his Victorian-born family. 

You can experience this dramatic and moving tale of local history online on Saturday, August 22, at 6pm via the Frankston Arts Centre Facebook page and YouTube channel. Tickets are priced at whatever you can afford. For more information, go to www.thefac.com.au
