Summer of the Seventeenth Doll by Ray Lawler
Plays and playwrights go in and out of fashion but some endure and speak to each subsequent generation.
Lawler’s much loved tale of Queensland cane cutters and Melbourne barmaids has endured, not through nostalgia, nor because it spawned a new age in Australian writing, but because the characters and their dilemmas are so true, so beautifully observed, so humorous and so poignant.
Suitable for ages 15+. Adult themes.
Duration – 2.5hours
