On St. Valentine’s Day in 1900, a party of twenty Australian schoolgirls and two governesses set out from Appleyard College to picnic at Hanging Rock. Some were never to return.

Hanging Rock is a spectacular volcanic uprising of ancient rocks in the Australian plains under Mount Macedon. “The rock is a nightmare, and nightmares belong in the past.” Or do they?

This thrilling new play, adapted from the iconic book and inevitably referencing the famous film, is produced by Wild Duck Theatre in association with the OSO Arts Centre and the support of the BCA. In the words of The Guardian “this play will scare the pants off you”.
