By Nick Enright and Justin Monjo. Perth Festival. Black Swan and Malthouse Theatre. Directed by Matthew Lutton. His Majesty’s Theatre, Perth, WA. Feb 21 - Mar 15, 2020
Cloudstreet, first produced by Black Swan State Theatre Company (with Company B) in 1998, has become a modern classic, especially in Western Australia, and is performed reasonably often in WA, by schools and community groups. But it is rarely performed in its original 3 hour 45 minute form. This rare experience is a co-production between Black Swan and Malthouse Theatre, as part of the Perth Festival, with the show running close to 5 and a half hours with intervals.
