Presented by Black Swan State Theatre Company of WA and The Blue Room Theatre
A MURDER BALLAD THAT DEVOURS YOU
In the dead of night, in the dusty Australian outback, you could hear a pin drop. And as the rumour mill churns in a restless town, can three women bury their dead weight of a secret? A lot can happen in three days…
The Bleeding Tree is a gripping revenge thriller that’s swept up almost every award in its path, including four Performing Arts WA Awards (2022), six Blue Room Theatre Awards (2021), three Helpmann Awards (2016) and the 2016 NSW Premier’s Literary Award.
Reborn with a cast of First Nations women breathing new life into its lungs, director Ian Michael (co-writer of York) takes this compelling tale to thrilling new levels of darkness and humour.
Haunting. Confronting. Irreverent. The Bleeding Tree hits you like a shot to the head with its fast-paced, unconventional poetic dialogue, so tense and mesmerising it has audiences hanging off every word.
