Scooplight Theatre presents the 2015 Rottnest After Dark Series, "Capturing the Enemy"
An engaging theatrical performance that will take you on a journey back to WWI (1914) when the Department of Defence commandeered the Island for use as an internment and Prisoner of War camp.
Through photographic film and theatre, the poignant stories of interned Prisoners of War and their military guards are “captured” and shared. The theatrical presentation marks the centenary of the Great War and the impact it had on Rottnest Island during 1914 and 1915.

The Great War (Capturing the Enemy supporting exhibition)
In conjunction with award-winning Scooplight Theatre and the Rottnest After Dark theatre production, Rottnest Island Authority will be hosting an exhibition in the Salt Store in Thomson Bay from early April to late August. As part of the centenary of World War One, the exhibition contains photographs taken on Rottnest Island in 1914 and 1915 by German internees, along with objects made on the Island during this period when the Island was an internment camp for enemy aliens. The photographs show familiar landscapes and buildings, along with those captured or who worked on the Island and those who guarded them.
