​A mystery drama adapted by Tom Wright, Based on the book by Joan Lindsay, Directed by Helen Ellis

By special arrangement with Dominie Pty Ltd

Many will know this story from Peter Weir's classic film of the novel, which was released in 1975. The play, adapted by Tom Wright from Joan Lindsay’s 1967 novel, is narrated by five performers, “five Australian women”, who are named in the published script after the actors who played them in the first production. They are struggling to solve the mystery at the heart of Joan Lindsay's original novel, which presents itself as the true story of the disappearance of three schoolgirls and their teacher, who inexplicably vanish into the mountainside, while on a picnic expedition to Hanging Rock in Victoria on Valentine’s Day, 1900. Euphoria and terror reverberate throughout the community, as the potential for history to repeat itself becomes nightmarishly real.
