Night on Bald Mountain

By Patrick White

Malthouse Theatre,

Theatre

The tale of a hermit goatkeeper, gatekeeper to a lonely mountain top; a disaffected academic and his equally disaffected, alcoholic wife; and a lost soul retreating from her own life by attempting to fulfil the lives of others.

 

"AN ASTONISHINGLY PLAY PORTRAYING WHITE'S DESOLATE VISION OF A WORLD THAT MUST DESTROY ITSELF BEFORE THERE CAN BE HOPE." 

— The Sun Herald

 

"JULIE FORSYTH CAN BRING ALL MANNER OF TEARS TO YOUR EYES IN THE SPACE OF A FEW HEARTBEATS. SHE IS UNQUESTIONABLY OUR GREATEST TRAGIC-COMEDIENNE."

— The Sydney Morning Herald
