Based on true events, The Last Shot by Troy Russell is an intimate musical tale of romance, heartbreak and tragedy in colonial times. Star-crossed lovers Jimmy and Florrie take flight through Gomeroi Country, seeking refuge with strangers.

One night, after singing and dancing at the local camp, a foreboding event catapults them into turmoil. Forced to make an escape, Jimmy and Florrie set off into the night followed by a landowner in pursuit of revenge. Drawing on a range of musical genres, and accompanied by archival imagery, The Last Shot is a story of romance and chaos, pulling on your heartstrings and lifting your spirits.

Supported by Kirk Page (Mulandjali/ Badu Island), and Nardi Simpson (Yuwaalaraay), along with Breeana Baxter, Chris Beltran, John Blair (Nucoorilma, Gamilaroi), Kevin Hunt, Leila Hamilton and Preston Peachy (Wiradjuri/ Malyangapa), acclaimed composer, musician and filmmaker Troy Russell (Biripi/ Gamillaroi) explores the tribulations of his ancestor's stories in his most important work to date.

The Last Shot was first developed as part of Moogahlin Performing Arts’ Yellamundie Festival with Sydney Festival at Carriageworks in 2021. Yellamundie Festival showcases new First Peoples work for stage with a diversity and range of stories and voices from across Australia.
