Night on Bald Mountain

$34.99

Published in Patrick White: Collected Plays Volume 1

Banned in his own lifetime by the author himself, Night on Bald Mountain returned to the stage in 1996. This poetic thriller, written in the shadow of the atomic bomb, explores the heart and the intellect in a study of misplaced love and desire. Deliberations on the individual's place in society are the subject of a motley gathering, comprised of a goat-farming eccentric, a professor and his alcoholic wife, a nurse and a pair of hikers.

NEW LIGHT CAST ON PATRICK WHITE'S NIGHT ON BALD MOUNTAIN

CLARE KERMOND, SYDNEY MORNING HERALD, 26 APRIL 2014

"Night on Bald Mountain is not without its controversy. White is reported to have said he did not want to see the work performed again in his lifetime, after its debut in Adelaide in 1964. The play was written in the shadow of the atomic bomb and White has also called it the first true Australian tragedy."

REVIEW: NIGHT ON BALD MOUNTAIN | MALTHOUSE THEATRE

CAROL MIDDLETON, AUSTRALIAN STAGE, 10 MAY 2014

"This revival of Night on Bald Mountain is a work of passion, a tribute to one of our great writers. The excellent team of actors and production crew have brought new life to a text that is rich in meaning and that, played out on this monumental stage set, has the power to move, challenge and entertain."
