ABOUT

Written by multi-award winning playwright Jane Bodie, LAMB is a touchingly beautiful play with songs, featuring original music by Mark Seymour (Hunters and Collectors).

LAMB follows two generations of family, set on an Australian sheep farm. A bittersweet story of Annie, Kathleen and Patrick, three siblings born onto their parents’ property.

LAMB explores the lies and secrets kept, loves lost and opportunities missed. Told with subtlety and humour, LAMB spans 40 years, telling an intimate story of one family and rural life. Mark Seymour’s exquisite original songs feature as part of the story throughout the production.
