Once We Lived Here

  • Blue Room Theatre 53 James Street Perth, WA, 6000 Australia (map)

The Blue Room Theatre & Western Sky Theatre present Once We Lived Here. An exciting Australian musical that will receive its WA premiere at The Blue Room Theatre in October.

Once We Lived Here centres around Amy (Taryn Ryan), who runs her family’s sheep station ‘Emoh Ruo’, in rural Australia. She's held onto the property through drought, bushfire, and falling wool prices, determined not to let it slip out of the family grasp. Over a scorching long weekend, the family gathers, and Amy has to face up to the myths and lies the place has been built upon.

Written by the critically acclaimed team of Dean Bryant & Mathew Frank (themselves WAAPA graduates from the 1990s), this full-length musical is an authentically Australian story, with a uniquely Australian sound. The debut season in Melbourne received a Green Room Award for Best New Musical, and was described by Geoffrey Rush as “a beautiful, poignant piece of home-grown music theatre”. The Age newspaper described it as “musical theatre full of life, emotion and renewal”
