Summer of the Seventeenth Doll

From the canefields to the city, an iconic Australian story of passion, bittersweet romance and the yearning for lost youth.

A beautifully observed, humorous and poignant play, Ray Lawler’s much-loved tale of two Queensland cane cutters who for 16 years have worked up north in the brutal sugar cane fields and travelled back to Melbourne to meet up for five months of partying and romance with their barmaid girlfriends. But this seventeenth summer will prove challenging for them all. A triumph at its 1955 Melbourne premiere and highly successful West End season, this 2020 production of the Australian classic Summer of the Seventeenth Doll directed by award-winning Denny Lawrence celebrates the 65th Anniversary of this iconic play.

“The Doll is a wonderful piece of theatre, that isn’t really about a moment in our past, but about the search for love and the disappointments, denial and heartbreak that can come to those who refuse to see the realities of the world around them”. Australian Stage

“A story of love, heartache, hope and loss, Ray Lawler’s Summer of the Seventeenth Doll remains one of the theatrical canon’s most moving explorations of the fading of youth and dreams”.  Arts Review
