"......Go, go see the world like your grandfather went to do and come sit by his tree sometimes and think that your woe will never be as great as mine."

Up on the Queen’s Domain is a quiet jewel in Hobart’s history. An avenue of memorial trees, planted after WW1, by relatives and friends of soldiers who sacrificed their lives in that terrible conflict.

The Tree Widows tells the stories of not just the soldiers whose trees are on the Soldier’s Memorial Avenue but gives a surprising glimpse into the families, relatives, friends and members of the general public who have a connection to this contemplative, beautiful place.

Moving with the performers from tree to tree along the Avenue, these monologues are an engaging, funny, and deeply moving way to see a place you may think you know in an entirely new way – a way to breathe in the past through your own city.
