When a toddler is murdered in a small town and a mother's daughter comes home wearing blood-soaked sneakers, what is she to do?
Wolf Lullaby is the grim story of nine-year old Lizzie Gael and the suspicious death of Toby Chester. Set in a small, Tasmanian town, this play searches for sense in a chaotic situation, in one of the most affecting, character-driven story lines to be performed on a Brisbane stage.
This modern adaption of the classic Australian play by Hilary Bell follows four characters whose lives quickly take a dramatic turn for the worse. Reimagined by Joshua Taylor, this production utilises state-of-the-art multimedia, creative set design and the raw elements of Bell's captivating storyline to create a tense and thought-provoking live show.
Wolf Lullaby plays at Metro Arts from October 22 to 24. Tickets cost $15 and can be purchased online. We have to warn you — this contains adult themes, coarse language, strobe lighting, and smoke effects, i.e., it's not one for the kiddies.
