Picnic at Hanging Rock

From: October 31, 2022, till November 5, 2022,

Book by Joan Lindsay | Adapted by Tom Wright

On St Valentine’s Day 1900 a group of schoolgirls from Appleyard College set out for a picnic at Hanging Rock, a volcanic beauty spot in rural Victoria, Australia. After lunch, a group of the girls climb into the blaze of the afternoon sun. Their idyllic day turns to nightmare as three of their number inexplicably vanish, never to be 
seen again. Five female narrators, performing all the parts, recount the mystery of the disappearance and the looming hysteria as the illusion of genteel society 
is torn apart. Tom Wright’s adaptation pares down the events and by using evocative & poetic language, creates an edgy and mysterious play.

Directed by Debby Wilkinson
