Griffin Theatre Company presents
The Bleeding Tree

8 May 2018 to 12 May 2018

“POWERFUL, VISCERAL AND DEEPLY EXHILARATING THEATRE” The Guardian

In a dirt-dry town in rural Australia, a shot shatters the still night. A mother and her daughters have just welcomed home the man of the house… with a bullet. The only issue now is disposing of the body. Will they get away with it? When is doing wrong, doing right?

Triggered into thrilling motion by an act of revenge, The Bleeding Tree is an Australian murder ballad powerfully crafted for the stage, with three strong women fighting back. Throughout, playwright Angus Cerini’s writing is powerfully lyrical, bracingly funny and a highly original take on Australian gothic.

The Bleeding Tree premiered at Griffin Theatre Company in 2015. It immediately earned praise as “a great and complex production” (The Australian) and went on to win three Helpmann Awards – including Best Play, Best Direction and Best Female Actor, as well as the 2016 NSW Premier’s Literary Award.

“Equal parts murder ballad and revenge thriller.” Sydney Morning Herald
