“Sometimes people leave, they go away and you don’t see them anymore. And then sometimes they come back.”

A bittersweet story of Annie, Kathleen and Patrick—three siblings born onto their parents’ property— Lamb explores the lies and secrets kept, loves lost and opportunities missed. Told with subtlety and humour, Lamb spans 40 years, telling an intimate story of one family and rural life. Mark Seymour’s original songs feature as part of the story throughout the production.

‘One of the smartest and most moving plays that I’ve seen in quite some time...’ Michael Cathcart, The Hub on Stage (ABC RN)
