*Tickets on sale early 2022*

 

The beloved Australian classic novel and ground-breaking film Looking for Alibrandi comes to the stage for the first time in July 2022.

 

A story about intergenerational trauma, the webs of migration, the power of women, history and how all these aspects intersect, this theatrical experience examines the Italian-Australian experience through the lives of three generations of women.

Adapted by Vidya Rajan from the best-selling novel by Melina Marchetta and directed by Stephen Nicolazzo (Loaded, Merciless Gods).
