Sydney Theatre Company - Into the Shimmering World
2 April to 19 May

Into the Shimmering World

Roslyn Packer Theatre, Walsh Bay

Presented by Sydney Theatre Company
The full force of nature

Ended on Tuesday, 2 April 2024

By Angus Cerini
Directed by Paige Rattray

From the monumental playwriting talents of 2020 Patrick White Playwrights Fellow Angus Cerini (The Bleeding Tree, Wonnangatta) comes this epic and poetic story of love, loss and renewal.

Stage and screen legends Colin Friels and Kerry Armstrong play Ray and Floss, a farming couple who have lived off the land their entire adult lives.
Through boom times and bust, they've been each other's support and constant companion. But at the tail end of a once-in-a-generation drought, both are on the precipice of earth-shattering change and transformation.

Into the Shimmering World will beguile audiences with its gothic and dreamlike take on the Australian landscape, its lush and musical language, and its powerful exploration of the depths of our national psyche.

STC Director of New Work and Artistic Development Paige Rattray (Do not go gentle..) will premiere this new Australian masterpiece in the glorious expanse of an extended Wharf 1 Theatre, in a production that is set to be a rich evocation of the mysteries of the natural world and a lyrical look at humanity's changing relationship to it.

What awaits Ray and Floss when the drought finally breaks?.
