The Cockatoos is a tale of suburban secrets broken open to the light. A mob of wild cockatoos has descended on the neighbourhood. For some they bring life and renewal – but for others, death and destruction.

Olive and Mick dance tentatively towards reconciliation. Eight year old Tim spends a night alone in the park. These two stories rise in a spiralling sarabande of exclusion and belonging.

Award-winning independent theatre company Happy Dagger Theatre will present the World Premiere stage adaptation of Australian Nobel Laureate Patrick White's short story The Cockatoos at The Blue Room Theatre, Northbridge, from October 20 - November 7.

For lovers of Australian classic literature, contemporary theatre, and anyone who enjoys great storytelling told beautifully, The Cockatoos will delight, captivate and challenge. Be one of the first to see this exciting new adaptation of a quintessential Australian story.
