On a blistering summer’s day in 1900, four private school girls and a teacher venture up Hanging Rock. All but one vanish, never to be seen again. And so, the nightmare begins.
After sell-out seasons in Melbourne and Edinburgh, Matthew Lutton’s production of Picnic at Hanging Rock returns for a Malthouse Theatre encore before heading directly to the Barbican in London.
In this chilling adaptation, five school girls recount this enduring Australian mystery, that saw audiences screaming in their seats. Joan Lindsay’s summer classic is more haunting than ever.
