Red Sky Morning

Thursday, 8 September 2016 to Friday, 30 September 2016

A woman. A man. A girl. Over the course of a single day these three voices from one family intertwine to tell a story of isolation in regional Australia. Moments missed, dreams not shared and the tragedy of the everyday course through this powerful and redemptive tale about the need to connect.

Crafted by award-winning Australian playwright Tom Holloway (Storm Boy, And No More Shall We Part), Red Sky Morning was named as the play of the year by the Sunday Age when first produced by Red Stitch in Melbourne.

Structured as a lyrical intertwining of three internal monologues, the text is a powerful example of what theatre does best, the telling of stories from heart to heart and mind to mind.

Helmed by up-and-coming director Sarah Dunn (Melancholy Play) and starring Julie Wood (Solstice), this South Australian premiere promises to fill the intimate Bakehouse Theatre with aching, poetic beauty.

NOTE: For this show only, bookings are made through BASS

"Director Sarah Dunn has brought this excellent production together with painstaking care... (she) ..and her team have revived a work that, in 70 short minutes, uncovers matters often held dangerously close to the Australian heart....With breakdown comes breakthrough, and the very small beginnings of restored communication....It is a domestic blitzkrieg"
Murray Bramwell - The Australian
"Profoundly well-written and ably produced, Red Sky Morning is an emotionally challenging but highly rewarding play that showcases the possibilities of theatrical narrative."
Alison Flett - Indaily
