Description - Cloudstreet by Nick Enright

A sprawling stage adaptation of Tim Winton's enormously successful novel of the same name. A huge success at the 1998 Sydney and Perth festival, the story follows the fluctuating fortune of two families who inhabit a rambling old house in Perth. Both the novel and stage adaptation have proven to be major works and have each left an indelible mark on the Australian arts scene (3 acts, 20 men, 13 women, extras).
