MURWILLUMBAH

"While a fictional tale, "The Man from Earth" prompts us to contemplate the enigmas of existence and the ever-flowing passage of time. This stage adaptation is inspired by the fascinating 2007 American science fiction film helmed by Richard Schenkman and penned by acclaimed sci-fi writer Jerome Bixby. The narrative unfolds as colleagues of university history professor John Oldman are taken aback by his unexpected retirement announcement. He reveals a startling reason – his immortality compels him to move on every decade to avoid suspicion.


Catch "The Man from Earth" from Friday, March 8th at 7.30 pm until Sunday, March 24th at 2 pm, featuring cabaret-style seating (select your table upon booking) and the option to bring your own food and drinks (including alcohol). Snacks, tea, and coffee will also be on offer at the canteen.
