Sep 13 @ 7:30 pm – Sep 21 @ 2:00 pm



Picnic at Hanging Rock

From the book by Joan Lindsay, adapted by Tom Wright 

Presented by the Launceston Players in association with IO Productions.

 In September 2019 we welcome Peter Hammond back as a director with the classic Australian hit ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’. This is a story which defies explanation and this stage adaptation, with just 8 cast members playing multiple roles, will add to the mystery and intrigue already embedded in the runaway best-seller novel and the classic Australian film.
