It will be wonderful to be back in my home town, making the Christmas show for this grand theatre in which I had so many of my most formative theatrical experiences. Picnic at Hanging Rock is a cult classic in its native country — originally a novel by Joan Lindsay and subsequently a film directed by Peter Weir this stage production was a huge hit in Melbourne and Perth. Adapted by award-winning playwright Tom Wright The War of the Roses, The Lost Echo , this chilling revision follows five performers as they struggle to solve the mystery of the missing girls and their teacher in the vast Australian Outback.
Euphoria and terror reverberate throughout Appleyard College, as the potential for history to repeat itself becomes nightmarishly real. The sun beat down on the faces of the three girls. On a summers day in three Australian schoolgirls grew tired of their classmates and yearned for adventure. Acclaimed artist Max Webster will bring a distinctive Scottish flair to this Shakespearean classic, with a troupe of actor-musicians, to create a vibrant and lyrical production of this bitter-sweet story which examines the themes of love, betrayal, magic, and misfortune.
Too hot! To mingle friendship far is mingling blood … My heart dances and not for joy. When King Leontes suspects his wife Hermione of adultery his jealousy tears his family, and his kingdom, apart. The queen is banished and believed dead, while their daughter Perdita is abandoned among simple shepherd folk. It speaks of family, jealousy and loss, but also of the power of love and hope to transform our lives.
