'From multi-award-winning playwright Jane Bodie, and featuring original songs by Mark Seymour (Mark Seymour and the Undertow, Hunters and Collectors), Lamb is the story of one family on an Australian sheep farm, over generations – the guilt of those who left; the lost desires of those who stayed behind.
“You left a trail of broken bread
Across the old battle ground
Behind the veil of the living and the dead
You wrote your secrets down.”
'Developed through Red Stitch’s INK program, Lamb is a new Australian play full of lyrical longing and humour. It is a story of the land, and of lies told and secrets kept to protect those we love – and to stop them from leaving us.'
