Picnic at Hanging Rock archiveBased on the Joan Lindsay runaway bestseller Picnic at Hanging Rock - also the source of the acclaimed Peter Weir film. This exciting adaptation, by Laura Annawyn Shamas, explores a baffling disappearance which takes its toll on a small community. Who in the large cast of fascinating characters is responsible for the crime? A delicate look at crisis, greed and honesty at the turn of the century, Picnic at Hanging Rock invites its viewers to examine the people of Woodend and the consequences of their actions. Hauntingly and ironically, the play shows that what seems pristine and proper on the outside may not be free of moral corruption on the inside. The final climactic twist is shocking and bittersweet, with an impact that is unforgettable.
