Time Out Global - 03-19


When Matthew Lutton was growing up in Perth, he experienced a West Australian rite of passage — an encounter with Tim Winton’s Cloudstreet. Lutton, the artistic director of Malthouse Theatre, recalls having a near-visceral reaction to the book’s ability to portray both the mundane and the epic in a way that was fiercely Australian. The strange beauty of the 1991 novel is the basis for one of Malthouse Theatre’s most ambitious productions to date.
