End of Winter
Will climate change erase winter leaving it to exist only in fairy tales, paintings, and historical accounts?
In hot, bushfire-prone Australia our winters are becoming warmer and shorter. The End of Winter is about loss and resilience. It’s about the places one can search for cold weather —places that can be reached via public transport and the imagination.
This is a new work for the stage that speaks to our current climate crisis. Written in the wake of the devastation of the 2019 bush fires it asks: What’s happening to winter?
Siren Theatre Co and the award-winning team behind Good With Maps are collaborating on Noëlle Janaczewska’s next masterpiece – The End of Winter.
Noëlle Janaczewska is a multi-award-winning Australian writer whose plays, radio scripts, libretti, fiction, and essays have been performed, broadcast and published throughout Australia and overseas.
From Kate Gaul (director): “Noëlle’s unfailing ability to ignite universal emotions and laughter in all of us while gloriously revealing her own exquisite uniqueness is one of this piece’s great joys. This is a feminist work, which explores shifting identities – writer, child, carer, lover, explorer.”
Warning: Use of haze.
★★★★ “The End of Winter is often enlightening, often sobering, and occasionally laugh-out-loud funny. Recommended.” Diana Simmonds, Stage Noise
