Two private school girls are missing in Melbourne’s hinterland. The clock is ticking, the search is on. The one clue is 15-year-old Vivienne. Beguiling, quick-witted, provocative, she won’t give up her secrets easily. What exactly will the police uncover?

Award-winning playwright Angela Betzien (an STC Patrick White Playwrights’ Fellow) has created a tense, tantalising crime thriller that reveals the mysterious underbelly of a privileged world.

Drawing on Australia’s lasting fascination with the way our vast country can swallow people whole,The Hanging is an original work that twists the familiar into something entirely novel. Resident Director Sarah Goodes (Switzerland) has assembled a superb cast, with Luke Carroll (Battle of Waterloo), Ashleigh Cummings (Channel Ten’sPuberty Blues) and Genevieve Lemon (Noises Off) to play the trio of characters at the heart of this riveting new play.
