3 older siblings

A Red Stitch and Critical Stages Touring production


by Jane Bodie


QUT is committed to the health and safety of our community. In response to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, QUT Gardens Theatre complex is temporarily closed until further notice. In consultation with the producers, we have rescheduled Lamb to 30 & 31 March 2021 and advised all ticket buyers by email. If the new date isn't suitable, ticket buyers can request a full refund of the ticket price.

A play about family, the land, and being the one who stays.

Siblings Annie, Kathleen and Patrick are second-generation sheep farmers, raised on their parents' property and destined to follow in their dusty, sun-baked footsteps working the land. Told with subtlety, humour, and an original soundtrack of Mark Seymour's exquisite songs, Lamb follows two generations of an Australian farming family, spanning 40 years of lies and secrets kept, loves lost and opportunities missed.

Written by multi-award winning playwright Jane Bodie, Lamb is a touchingly beautiful play with songs featuring original music by Mark Seymour (Hunters and Collectors).

[This] elegantly crafted three-hander delivers intimate and textured domestic drama, drawing an intricate study of grief... Director Julian Meyrick composes everything at a gentle pace, combining an electric stage picture, Seymour's music, and sympathetic portrayals.
