What's On

Once We Lived Here

17 OCTOBER - 4 NOVEMBER 2017 // 8:30PM
Western Sky Theatre

By Dean Bryant and Mathew Frank

An authentically Australian musical about life, love, and family.

Amy runs Emoh Ruo, her family’s sheep station in rural Australia. She's held onto the property through drought, bushfire, and falling wool prices, determined not to let it slip out of the family’s grasp. But when everyone gets together over a scorching long weekend, Amy has to face up to the myths and lies the place has been built upon. Is she really holding on or is she just stuck?

Written by the critically acclaimed team of Dean Bryant and Mathew Frank, this funny and touching look at a passing way of life now has its West Australian premiere featuring a stellar cast of WAAPA Music Theatre graduates and a live band.

Winner of the 2009 Green Room Award for Best New Musical.

"A beautiful, poignant piece of home-grown music theatre. It may echo Chekhov and Sondheim but it's thrillingly pure Oz." Geoffrey Rush

Director: Andrew Baker | Music Director: Josh Haines | Assistant Director: Mitchell Whelan | Production Manager: Erin Hutchinson | Designer: Rhiannon Walker | Featuring: Joshua Firman, Megan Kozak, Taryn Ryan, Chris Wilcox & Sharon Kiely
