Summer of the Seventeenth Doll by Ray Lawler
From the canefields to the city, an iconic Australian story of passion, bittersweet romance and the yearning for lost youth.
A beautifully observed, humorous and poignant play, Ray Lawler’s much loved tale of two Queensland cane cutters who for 16 years have worked up north in the brutal sugar cane elds and travelled back to Melbourne to meet up for five months of partying and romance with their barmaid girlfriends. But this seventeenth summer will prove challenging for them all.
A triumph at its 1955 Melbourne premiere, and highly successful West End season, this 2020 production of the Australian classic Summer of the Seventeenth Doll directed by award winning Denny Lawrence celebrates the 65th Anniversary of this iconic play.
