Australia’s most-loved play receives a 35th anniversary recreation in a sparkling new production directed by Daniel Evans (The Tragedy of King Richard III; Cinderella).

Set in 1967 against the backdrop of an Australia embroiled in the Vietnam War, three separate families pack-up their lives for Christmas at the beach where a freak storm forces their respective vacations to fall apart and intersect in the most magical way.

With a rollicking 60s soundtrack and star-studded cast including Queensland theatre luminaries Roxanne McDonald, Christen O’Leary and Bryan Probets, this sun-kissed revival breathes new life into Michael Gow’s adored Australian classic, taking audiences on a nostalgic journey from deep suburbia to the Gold Coast’s glitter strip for the ultimate summer fling.
