Rob Pensalfini’s Bogga is a fascinating work based on oral histories of the detainers and detainees of Brisbane most infamous gaol, focussing on the heritage prison’s incredible history and Queensland’s history in general.
Bogga explores the fall of Queensland’s Bjelke-Petersen regime and questions through the microcosm of Brisbane’s notorious Boggo Road Gaol in the 1970s and 1980s, whether Queensland has truly buried the values of this bureaucracy, or if it remains, festering unseen in the background.
Bogga was first produced by the Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble 8-18 November 2017 at the Geoffrey Rush Drama Studio, the University of Queensland, St Lucia.
