The University of Southern Queensland (USQ) presents Cloudstreet by Nick Enright and Justin Monjo. Performed by USQ’s second year theatre students, Cloudstreet is a celebration of community and a look at family connection in working class Australia. Two families, the Pickles and the Lambs, have occupied the same suburban Perth house for twenty years post World War II. One family, steeped in austere Christian values and a ferocious belief in hard work and self-denial; the other a reckless hedonistic bunch of boozing larrikins. Based on Tim Winton’s iconic novel, Cloudstreet is a collection of searing, funny, tragic, whimsical and dreamlike metaphors for an Australia in search of its beliefs, direction and identity.
