Drama Theatre, Sydney Opera House

WONNANGATTA 

By Angus Cerini
Directed by Jessica Arthur

World premiere

A haunting tale of mystery and revenge

Wonnangatta Station, 1918. Two men arrive at a dark and empty farmhouse looking for the manager, their friend Jim Barclay. No one’s heard from him for more than a month. Something’s amiss. Then a grim discovery sets the men off on a journey across the harsh Australian terrain, looking for answers, maybe for revenge.

Angus Cerini’s multi-award-winning The Bleeding Tree was a sensation on its premiere at Griffin Theatre and again when remounted by STC at The Wharf. In Wonnangatta, Cerini’s dark lyricism explores the Australian landscape – geographic and psychological – in a hard-driving yet poetic celebration of language and story.

Who better than theatrical powerhouses Hugo Weaving and Wayne Blair to bring these words to life in an exciting world premiere production directed by Resident Director Jessica Arthur?

This Australian gothic fable will keep you on the edge of your seat.

“Something’s not right. Not right at all.”

Wonnangatta was developed with the assistance of the Australian Writers’ Guild David Williamson Prize Development Grant.

Production Patron Girgensohn Foundation
