The Season by Nathan Maynard

A Tasmanian Performs production.

The The
Families are like seasons: you don't get to pick them, and when they show up you best be ready.

Somewhere between mainland Australia and its southern-most mate Tassie lies Dog Island. For six weeks every year that's where you'll find the Duncans, a mob as funny as they are unforgettable.

They come back to roost for mutton-bird season, and have done for as long as anyone can remember. Amid the threat of snakes and Pop’s explosive temper, the family reunites with a country and culture still very much alive.

But their long memories and smart-arse streak mean it’s not just the birds sticking their beaks where they’re not welcome.

Old secrets are dug from their burrows and fledgling rivalries begin to take flight - it might all fall apart if it wasn't for the fierce love that holds this bunch together.

Nathan Maynard has crafted a deadly funny portrait of a singular corner of our world. Directed by Isaac Drandic and featuring a stellar cast including Lisa Maza, Trevor Jamieson and Luke Carroll, this national tour of the original acclaimed production is raucous and rowdy celebration of tradition and the bonds that unite us.
