Jerilderie letter soundscape

Immerse yourself in the drama of the Jerilderie siege, when Ned Kelly and his gang took over the small Riverina town in February 1879. Using voice, sound effects and music, this soundscape recreates the events that led to Kelly handing over his Jerilderie letter to Edwin Living.

Directed by John Paul Fischbach, it's a fictionalised version of real incidents drawn from historical sources.

John Paul is an internationally recognised theatre director, producer and special events creator. He has worked on heritage and history dramatic audio projects in Australia, Canada and the US.
