About: In 1900, a group of young women from the exclusive Appleyard College travel to the isolated Hanging Rock, deep in the Australian bush for a Valentine’s Day picnic. The excursion ends in tragedy when four girls and a teacher mysteriously disappear after climbing the rock. Days later one girl returns with no memory of what happened, leaving the school and the community to struggle with the terror of not knowing what may have become of the others.
Tom Wright’s chilling adaptation of Joan Lindsay’s Australian Gothic novel uses an all-female ensemble to explore post-colonial culture and question what it means to be a young woman with desires and ambition in a world that feel inescapably oppressive.
Picnic at Hanging Rock was first co-produced by Malthouse Theatre and Black Swan State Theatre Company, Perth, and first performed at Malthouse Theatre, Melbourne, in 2016.

LOST is the AIM Dramatic Arts 2019 Australian contemporary play season which pairs Picnic at Hanging Rock, Tom Wright’s award-winning adaptation of Joan Lindsay’s cult classic with The Boys, Gordon Graham’s award-winning evocation of toxic masculinity.
Directed by David Fenton and Peta Downes respectively, these classic Australian stories will form companion plays in a repertory season performed by the 2019 Bachelor of Performance Second Year Student Company, which focuses on the notions of psychological and physical abuse, surviving the unknown, and the social voice and visibility of women.
