The Flood by Patrick White Playwrights Award winner Jackie Smith

From internationally acclaimed, multi award winning creators Finucane & Smith comes the  haunting and electrifying work hailed as “masterful… an Australian Gothic that defines the genre”. The dilapidated farm house, sits by the river, sheltering a mad old lady, and her isolated hard-drinking daughter. As the sun sets, the flood waters rise. The screen door bangs open in the rain and wind; Catherine has returned after 20 years.  

Through the mesmerising friction between estranged sisters, fuelled by alcohol three women are trapped with a past no one wants to remember. Bristling with dark humour and edge-of-the-seat performances by three of our finest actresses, The Flood is startlingly authentic writing, plunging audiences into the lives of characters so real you feel you know them; a web of family intrigue against the haunting Australian outback.

“Smith’s handling of the gothic form is masterful. You have to see this, it’s Australian theatre that speaks from the heart of the country.” MCV
