Summer of the Seventeenth Doll

Not Available

For sixteen summers, Roo and Barney have spent their long layoff from the cane-cutting season down in Melbourne having a high old time with two Carlton barmaids, Olive and Nancy. But back for their seventeenth summer, it seems time has finally caught up with them.

This ground-breaking piece of Australian drama premiered at MTC in 1955. In 2012 it will return home, with Neil Armfield’s stunning new production, featuring a stellar cast including MTC favourites Alison Whyte and Robyn Nevin.

Warning: this production contains the use of herbal cigarettes. Thinking of bringing young people to the theatre? View our Parents’ Guide for information about suitability.
