On a sweltering hot Valentines Day 1900, in the Macedon region of Australia, 3 Australian schoolgirls and a teacher, on a picnic expedition to the remote Hanging Rock, abscond from their group. They are last seen heading towards the Rock.
In this chilling adaptation of Joan Lindsay’s classic story, 5 female performers struggle to solve the mystery of the missing girls and their teacher, they also tell of the horrific reverberations that their disappearance creates in the community.


 An amateur production by arrangement with Nick Hern Books
