Redland Museum


You see, 13th June 2017 marks 130 years to the day since Ellen Thomson was executed at Boggo Road Gaol - the only woman ever to be legally hanged in Queensland.

Margaret Dakin has researched Ellen Thompson's tragic story and, together with Glenda Ashleigh and other speakers, will give a living history performance of Ellen's background and her story leading to her death.

What was her crime?
Did she do it?
Was she alone?
 
As an introduction and separate to the play that will be performed elsewhere in Brisbane later in the year, they will bring historical context and give a living history performance to the audience at Redland Museum, with speakers, audio visuals & music plus spoken excerpts from the play.
