The Bleeding Tree by Angus Cerini

23 November - 11 December 2021


Presented by Ian Michael

A fierce revenge fairy-tale

“Shit we really really killed him.”

In an isolated town in Australia, a mother and her two daughters greet the man of the house with a crack on the shins and a shot in the neck. But what do they do with him after taking payback into their own hands?

In this revisioning of Angus Cerini’s award winning The Bleeding Tree, a cast of First Nations women tell the story of a mother and her daughters who are thrown into an unspeakable situation in this powerful and heartbreaking murder ballad.

Making his directorial debut, The Bleeding Tree is in the hands of Ian Michael (Noongar) and creatives Chloe Ogilvie (Yamatji Nhanda), Rachael Dease and Tyler Hill. Featuring Karla Hart (Noongar), Ebony McGuire (Noongar) and Stephanie Somerville (Martu), this WA premiere will see audiences bear witness to the three women as they tell their haunting and irreverently funny story.

“This is powerful, visceral and deeply exhilarating theatre” – The Guardian

The Bleeding Tree by Angus Cerini is supported by Block Branding and The Fulcrum Agency.
