Ray Lawler's classic play, which changed forever how Australians saw and heard themselves on stage, continues to offer some of the most enduring and dramatically challenging roles in the theatre repertoire.

Olive, a barmaid, living with her mother in a Melbourne terrace, pins her hopes on the 'lay-off' season each year, when she will reunite with Roo, a cane-cutter and her lover of sixteen years. Buoyed by passion they will celebrate his return, a passion shared by Bubba, the innocent girl next door, and Olive's friend, Pearl, a widow looking for change, who will be introduced to Roo's mate Barney - 'the boys'.

This is the seventeenth summer - and their lives are going to change forever. Lawler's wonderful play takes the audience on a journey that is at once funny, harsh, and at times uncompromisingly raw and heartbreaking in its dramatic power.
