A shot rings out across the night. A mother and her daughters take revenge on a life of misery, greeting the man of the house with a crack on the shins and a bullet in the neck.

But what do they do with the body?

Capturing all the danger and isolation of the Australian outback, Angus Cerini’s multi award-winning play The Bleeding Treeis a contemporary gothic tale of revenge that is fierce, poetic, heart breaking and uncomfortably funny.

This is the South Australian premiere of The Bleeding Tree.
