Christian College Presents Picnic At Hanging Rock
For a group of Australian schoolgirls, a romantic Valentine's Day outing ends in intriguing mystery. What has happened to the three seniors and the mathematics teacher on top of the jagged peak of Hanging Rock?
Based on the runaway best-seller, this exciting play explores a baffling disappearance which takes its toll on a small community in the Australian countryside. Who in the large cast of fascinating characters is responsible for the crime? Is it Mrs. Appleyard, the matron and headmistress of the college who nips brandy on the sly? Does young, beautiful French teacher Mademoiselle De Poitiers know more than she will say? And what about the two young men who watched the girls climb the mountain? Or maybe one of the eight remaining school girls conspired against the others...
Lady Joan Lindsay's Picnic At Hanging Rock is a delicate look at crisis, greed and honesty at the turn of the century by Laura Annawyn Shamas as presented by Christian College.
