A new play by Tom Wright adapted from Joan Lindsay's novel. 

Tom Wright’s adaptation of the classic novel is sure to excite and perplex a whole new generation, proving once again that no one can resist the lure of Hanging Rock.

Australia, 1900. An ancient land becomes the site of an impossible mystery. A group of schoolgirls and their teachers venture out into the sundrenched landscape, only for four of their number to disappear forever.

The subsequent investigation creates more questions than answers. One of the girls is found with no memory of what happened to her or her classmates, another succumbs to hysteria for no apparent reason. Those close to the missing girls begin to meet with unfortunate ends and it becomes clear that this is no ordinary disappearance.
