DO not miss this once-in-a-generation chance to see Tim Winton’s award-winning novel Cloudstreet on stage.

After breaking box office records in Melbourne, Black Swan State Theatre Company and Malthouse Theatre are proud to bring this epic production of Cloudstreet home – a story born of Perth.

Directed by Perth born and raised Matthew Lutton and with a cast of 12 including Bert LaBonté (Book of Mormon), Alison Whyte (Tim Winton’s Rising Water) and Arielle Gray (Picnic at Hanging Rock), this re-imagined epic experience will be the Perth Festival highlight of 2020.

Packed full of heart and hardship, Cloudstreet follows the lives of two families, the Lambs and the Pickles over two decades in post-war Perth, together they share an old house at number one Cloud Street haunted by a dark history.

While the feckless Pickles love drinking and betting, the Lambs are God-fearing and hard-working and over the years their lives become entwined in ways they could not have imagined.

Staged at the iconic His Majesty’s Theatre, this epic Cloudstreet experience is a true festival of senses that includes a dinner interval.

Through hospitality partner Brookfield Place, all Cloudstreet ticket holders will enjoy a 15 per cent discount at participating restaurants (pre-bookings a must).

Cloudstreet runs from Friday, February 21, to Sunday, March 15.
