Description Following the success of its premiere season during the 2015 Poppy Seed Festival, 15 Minutes from Anywhere’s blockbuster hit, The Yellow Wave crashes back over Melbourne’s The Butterfly Club from 26 April 2016.

Based on Kenneth Mackay’s 400-page Australian classic of 19th century literature, The Yellow Wave is a saga of love, heroism, and sacrifice. A prescient tale of war, passion and boat arrivals, this much lauded show features a huge cast of characters, exciting set pieces… and a vast array of questionable accents. It’s an invasion like no other.

Nominated for a 2015 Green Room Award for Best Ensemble, Melbourne audiences are being given the chance to revisit this epic story, or join the crush and experience it for the first time.
