ABOUT THE SHOW:
THE TRUE LOVE STORY OF CHARMIAN CLIFT, GEORGE JOHNSTON AND MY BROTHER JACK
They were writers, dreamers and free spirits. In the 1950s, Australian authors Charmian Clift and George Johnston fled halfway across the world to the idyllic Greek island of Hydra, determined to carve out a bohemian living as artists.As they revel in their picturesque community, far off the world’s literary map, inspiration for the great Australian work strikes. But a manyheaded monster of jealousy, infidelity, illness and alcoholism also rises from the crystal blue waters of their sun-kissed island home.Award-winning Sue Smith weaves the original writings of two of Australia’s literary icons into a moving relationship drama. She conjures the passion and intensity of the near mythical ‘King and Queen of Hydra’ as they follow their dream, only to end up in a Greek tragedy of their own making.
Cast Includes Ray Chong Nee, Tiffany Lyndall-Knight, Anna McGahan, Nathan O’Keefe, Hugh Parker, Bryan Probets
