Picnic at Hanging Rock

12 JAN to 16 FEB

A compelling story set in our own backyard, Picnic at Hanging Rock is as gripping as a true crime saga and as playful as the best modern fiction.

For a group of Australian schoolgirls, a romantic Valentine's Day outing ends in an intriguing mystery. Based on Joan Lindsay's runaway, best-selling novel, this exciting play explores a baffling disappearance that takes its toll on a small community in the Australian bush.

Tapping into our fear of the unknown, Picnic at Hanging Rock is a delicate look at crisis, greed and honesty at the turn of the century, while exploring issues more relevant than ever, and speaking to modern notions of nationhood and identity.
