PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK

SUPPORTED BY IO PERFORMANCE


"I know you're there ... Miranda? Miranda!"

St Valentine’s Day in 1900 is a blistering hot summer‘s day. Students and staff from Mrs Appleyard’s prestigious girl’s school set out for a picnic at Hanging Rock.

Growing tired of their classmates and yearning for adventure, four of the girls and a teacher abscond from the group and venture up towards the beckoning Hanging Rock.

All but one of the girls mysteriously disappear and are never seen again. So the nightmare begins.

Tom Wright’s new ‘spine tingling’ stage adaptation of this Australian culturally iconic novel (famously filmed by Peter Weir in 1975) has won critical acclaim for its dramatic retelling of the story. It has played to sell-out seasons in Perth, Melbourne and Edinburgh and now comes to Launceston under the direction of noted director, Peter Hammond.

The all-female cast struggle to solve the chilling mystery of the missing schoolgirls and their teacher while on that school excursion to Hanging Rock, making Joan Lindsay’s summer classic ‘more haunting than ever’.

“Written as a mystery & remains a mystery” – or does it?
