A joint production of Company B and Black Swan Theatre.

During the four years of Cloudstreet’s development Tim Winton took us around a number of stretches on the Swan River near Freemantle that had been important to him as a child growing up, and that he was wanting to pass on a an experience to his children.

Now, after our recent sell-out tour to Australian and European cities, (where it picked up the Best International Production Award from the Dublin Festival), in this a return Sydney season of Cloudstreet in 2001 we were all able to experience this wonderful time once again.

Simply awesome. Cloudstreet is a winner from beginning to end … something native, new, vast and unforgettable.

Sydney Morning Herald

The audience is hooked into a dialogue that often touches the soul.

The Age

I don’t think I’ve seen a more enthralling epic since the RSC’s Nicholas Nickleby 20 years ago.

The Times, UK

Cloudstreet is the kind of show that comes along about once in a decade to remind us of why we keep going to the theatre in the expectation of plenty.
