A Recent Review:You haven’t been to Hobart if you haven’t been here (No Mercy)! Wish the travelling theatre came to The Hunter and did a like performance at the Maitland Gaoll. Very informative and well attributed. Suitable for a wide range of age groups also. Again thank you for making my visit to Hobart. If you are you just docking there for the day it is well worth making your way here for the afternoon production.
