The End of Winter by Noëlle Janaczewska. Directed by Kate Gaul.
“It’s a bravura performance from Jane Phegan… as crisp and clear as a frosty night, it is a theatrical experience of bone-warming depth and of hope.” – Reviews by Judith
A beautiful new production that asks, will climate change erase winter leaving it to exist only in fairy tales, paintings, and historical accounts?
In hot, bushfire-prone Australia our winters are becoming warmer and shorter. The End of Winter is about loss and resilience. It’s about the places one can search for cold weather – places that can be reached via public transport and the imagination.
Multi-award-winning writer Noëlle Janaczewska’s new work for the stage speaks to our current climate crisis. Written in the wake of the devastating 2019 bushfires, it asks: What’s happening to winter?
The themes and ideas contained within The End of Winter lean into the most significant issue of our time – the changing climate and the loss of seasons.
