The return of a landmark production

A sold out hit in 2013, The Secret River is a stirring adaptation of Kate Grenville’s award-winning novel. In 2016, it returns for an encore season.

Directed by Neil Armfield, The Secret River is a story of two families divided by culture and land. William Thornhill arrives in New South Wales a convict from the slums of London. His family’s new home offers him something he hadn’t dare dream of: a place to call his own. On the banks of the Hawkesbury River, he plants a crop and lays claim to the soil in which it grows.

But the Hawkesbury is already home to another family. A family from the Dharug people, whose existence depends on that land. As Thornhill’s attachment to the land deepens, he is driven to a terrible decision that will haunt him for the rest of his life.

Winner of six Helpmann Awards, including Best ...more
