THE RED TREE
The Red Tree
explores the expressive possibilities of shared imagination. Adapted from the multi award-winning picture book by Shaun Tan, National Theatre of Parramatta has commissioned an adaptation to stage by award-winning playwright Hilary Bell, with music by award-winning composer Greta Gertler Gold directed by Neil Gooding.

This production is inspired by the impulse of children and adults alike to describe feelings using metaphor, this new adaptation explores landscapes, buildings, monsters, storms, sunshine and rainbows. These can be strange and familiar, our imaginations or our realities.
