2015 Xavier and Loreto Winter Play - Cloudstreet

One of our best loved Australian novels has to be Tim Winton’s saga of the Pickle and the Lamb families and their lives in the enormous house on Cloudstreet.

The 2015 Winter Play is an adaptation of the novel by Nick Enright and Justin Monjo.

The play is a must-see for the Xavier VCE students studying Cloudstreet as they can appreciate the adaptation and compare their interpretation of Winton’s colourful characters with those of the talented cast from both Xavier and Loreto Mandeville Hall. But those not familiar with the novel will love the story and be enthralled by this nostalgic play which explores notions of spirituality and coming of age through the triumphs and heartbreaks of family life.

Cloudstreet opens on Wednesday 29 July at 7:30pm and runs for four nights until Saturday 1 August. Tickets are $25 and $15 for concession holders. Tickets are available through Trybooking http://Www.trybooking.com/IKCZ

Don’t miss this special theatrical event.
