Cloudstreet as a play-script was written in 1998, based on Tim Winton’s celebrated novel. In 2019, director Matthew Lutton brings this play to the stage for a monumental new production, unprecedented in scale and ambition.

Cloudstreet follows the lives of two families – the Lambs and the Pickles – forced to live together in the same haunted house over a 25 year period. Spanning from World War II through to the 1960s, the play weaves their stories of shifting fortunes and relationships to tell a much larger story about life on the outskirts of one of the world’s most isolated cities, in a country that is trying to grow up.

Encounter the epic story of Cloudstreet with the Cloudstreet Experience, where you will see the whole story in one event—with two intervals and a designated area for meal breaks.
