Event description

Description

Herald subscribers, join us for a specially curated evening to enjoy Sydney Theatre Company’s unique new Australian drama, The Long Forgotten Dream. The evening includes an exclusive pre-show function featuring associate director Paige Rattray in conversation with the Spectrum editor, Shona Martyn. They will discuss how the production was brought to the stage, with its epic story and captivating characters.

Inspired by true stories, Ngarrindjeri writer H Lawrence Sumner’s exceptional play is a family story that brings to life four generations of history in an enchanting Australian town. Archaeologist Simone Tucker (Jada Alberts) has been scouring the world’s museums to track down her great-grandfather’s bones. When she finally finds them she returns home to give him the burial he always deserved. But what Simone doesn’t realise is that this burial will unearth heartrending secrets for herself and her father, Jeremiah (Wayne Blair).

Tickets for this event are $100 and include a pre-show function (6.45pm) with drinks and light nibbles as well as a short discussion. Plus, an A reserve ticket* for the 25 July (8.00pm) performance of The Long Forgotten Dream at the Sydney Opera House. Approximate runtime, 2 hours (including interval).





*Please note, seats cannot be selected when purchasing tickets. We have a block of seats reserved for subscribers, and seats will be allocated on the night. Closer to the event, an email will be sent to subscribers who purchased a ticket recapping all event details.
