Michael Gow’s award-winning modern classic is a moving portrayal of Australian families. Captured live on stage at Sydney Theatre Company and screened at Riverside, don’t miss this unique opportunity to see the 2017 production featuring an exceptional cast, from the ‘best seat in the house’.
It’s the summer of 1967, and three families head away for a beach holiday. Set against a backdrop of war and social revolution, they find themselves caught up in their own storm of secrets and conflict.
