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).
