The Red Tree, Parramatta, Thursday, 19. October 2017

The Red Tree is a new work of music theatre. We have commissioned writer Hilary Bell and composer Greta Gertler Gold to adapt Shaun Tan’s award-winning picture book, directed by Neil Gooding.

One morning Ava wakes up to find she can’t get herself out of bed. There’s nothing especially wrong, she’s just overwhelmed by her emotions: anxiety, embarrassment, shyness, fear. She retreats under the bedclothes, where these ordinary feelings take her to extraordinary places. When she discovers that she’s never been alone, she is ready to **** the day.

The score fuses pop, classical and traditional musical theatre elements with sound design and digital recording technology in an exciting, contemporary fashion.
