A chilling play that looks at children who murder is the Old Mill Theatre’s latest production, asking if there is intrinsic evil in the world.
Written by Australian playwright Hilary Bell and directed by Alida Chaney, Wolf Lullaby explores the themes of parental guilt and responsibility and whether some people are just born evil.
Set in a bleak, remote Tasmanian town, a small child is murdered – and suspicion falls on nine-year-old Lizzie.
Lizzie's mother is convinced her daughter is guilty and has to choose between her intuition and presenting Lizzie to the police while her father is in denial that his daughter could have been involved.
Playwright Hilary Bell was the inaugural winner of the Philip Parsons Young Playwrights Award in 1994 and is the daughter of John Bell, founder of the Bell Shakespeare Company.
Please note: the show contains adult themes and is not suitable for children under 15.
WHEN: 8pm July 31, August 1, 6, 7, 8, 12, 13, 14 and 15 with a 2pm matinee August 9.
