About the Show
Summer of the Seventeenth Doll is one of the most significant plays in Australian theatre history. This new Western Australian production will mark its presentation by every state theatre company in the country.
Set in 1950’s working class Melbourne, ‘The Doll’ revolves around the events of the seventeenth summer where two mates, on yet another ‘layo?’ season, come back to ‘live it up’ in the city with their girlfriends. However, this summer, things begin to change.
‘The Doll’ is the ultimate ‘sex in the city’ saga – seething with passion, disappointment and heartbreak, where not even love can protect those who refuse to see the realities of the changing world around them. With ‘FIFO’ and ‘DIDO’ now being a normal part of life for many Australian families, this play is more relevant to our audience than ever before.
“(Lawler) has written a play so superbly true to Australian thought and the Australian scene…We know their faces, their voices – we share their dreams, we understand their failures”. The Argus, on the world premiere in 1955 at the Union Theatre, Melbourne.
