William Gammel: Tackle Power

Season 4

William Gammel’s workplace was one of Australia’s largest warehouse stores – a place famed for weekend sausage sizzles and trolley-riding dogs.  Here, amidst aisles of bargains, Will faced a different challenge: shoplifters as common as discounted garden soil. But Will stood out – not just any employee, he tackled the thieving bandits with a unique flair. Picture this: a teenage David and Goliath, retail edition.

This story was told at Barefaced Stories in Perth, the theme of the night was BUSTED, August 2022.  You can see a video of William’s story on our Youtube channel here.

Barefaced Stories are told live onstage in Western Australia, and is Australia’s leading homegrown live storytelling event.
