It tells the story of two families from working-class backgrounds, the Pickles and the Lambs who happen to live together in a house in Perth, called Cloudstreet, over a period of twenty years. Performed its premiere at Her Majesty’s Theatre in 2016 presented by State Opera South Australia in association with the Adelaide Festival Centre.


"There was never a dull moment throughout the premiere, thanks to a stellar cast that captivated and excelled at every turn."

Limelight Dylan Henderson

"It tells a quintessentially Australian story, one with undoubted universal appeal."

The Australian Book Review Michael Halliwell

"Cloudstreet is a genuine ensemble production, and the acting and singing of the entire cast is world-class. Edwards has made the most of each performer’s talent to bring Winton’s complex characters to life."
