Belvoir St Theatre and Malthouse Theatre presents
Looking For Alibrandi

1 Oct 2022 to 6 Nov 2022

The beloved novel of migration, growing up, and Sydney – now a play!

Three generations of women. The Italian-Australian experience. A tale of Sydney. A much-loved modern classic novel, a ground-breaking film, and now at Belvoir, a simply great night out.

It’s the last year of school, and 17-year- old Josephine Alibrandi can’t wait for her future to begin. If only she can get past the world of her Nonna, holding on to the values of the old country; and the world of her Mum, full of care and secrets. It’s time to take her place in the real world, beyond her family, beyond being an Alibrandi.

But this is the year Josie gets to know her father. This is the year she falls in love. And this is the year she uncovers the truth – and finds the Alibrandi she has been searching for.

We’re really excited to see how this classic of first and second generation Italian migration plays now. It has a bit of everything – teen romance, coming-of-age, tragi-comedy in a very Australian vein. Also, it’s wonderful to have Stephen Nicolazzo directing for the Belvoir stage – he’ll bring a very Alibrandi flair. – Eamon
