Filled with irrepressible humour and a distinct Australian spirit, Away is a beloved modern classic. This sophisticated and stylish production of Michael Gow’s award-winning play brings an abundance of warmth and inventiveness to Sydney Opera House this summer.
It’s Christmas, 1967. Three families are about head for the coast to get away, to move on, to change. The end-of-year school play is a success. Tom and Meg’s young love is lighting up the dressing room. The cars are packed and summer holidays are finally here… But ’tis not the season to be jolly.
