Cloudstreet! First an iconic novel by Tim Winton, adapted into a brilliantly successful play, followed by a critically acclaimed television miniseries. Now it receives the operatic treatment it truly deserves in this world premiere season of Cloudstreet!
George Palmer’s evocative harmonies and achingly beautiful melodies make this the theatre event of the year. After a four-year development, this musical treatment of the story finally gets its chance to fly on the mainstage. Internationally renowned director Gale Edwards places her unmistakeable stamp on this landmark work.
Set in the mid-20th century, Cloudstreet! tells the story of two Western Australian families – the Lambs and the Pickles, and the extraordinary events that ultimately bind them together – often hilarious, sometimes harrowing. It is the story of Fish Lamb and the fate that makes him the link between two worlds, and of his brother Quick, and Rose, the girl across the hall. It is a story of love in all its forms, but most of all, it’s about catharsis and redemption.
Cloudstreet! will leave you exhilarated. This quintessential Australian story will be the talking point of 2016.
