About the event

In the imagined every-suburb of Sarsparilla, Miss Docker is looking for somewhere to belong as her search for purpose and love leads her in a series of increasingly surreal acts. We follow her from the home of her well-meaning neighbours Mr and Mrs Custance, to the nursing home, the church and finally to the isolated grounds of the crematorium, where a cattle dog makes a final bitter judgement. One of Australia’s most revered writers, Patrick White uses poetic language and piercing satire to peel back the scalp of the Australian mind and reveal the underlying horror of 1950s suburbia. These acidic insights are as dark and funny now as they were upon the play’s debut in 1963. The magnificent Sarah Peirse (The Children, Switzerland) steps into Miss Docker’s fiercely sensible shoes in a bold new interpretation for the 21st century, joined by an outstanding ensemble including Anita Hegh (The Harp in the South), Tara Morice (The Harp in the South), Shari Sebbens (Black is the New White) and Bruce Spence (Endgame). Please note that the offer ends midnight before the performance day and subject to availability.
