Amy runs Emoh Ruo, the family sheep station in outback Australia. She’s held onto the property through drought, bushfire, and falling wool prices, determined not to let it slip out of the family grasp. But when the family gathers over a scorching long weekend, Amy has to face up to the myths and lies the place has been built upon. Is she really holding on or is she just stuck?
After a successful first season featuring Così and Speaking In Tongues, Australian Made Entertainment is proud to kick off their second season with the U.S. premiere of Once We Lived Here, written by the critically acclaimed musical team of Dean Bryant & Mathew Frank. Winner of the 2009 Green Room Award for Best New Musical, this authentically Australian musical was described by Geoffrey Rush as “a beautiful, poignant piece of home-grown music theatre. It may echo Chekhov and Sondheim but it’s thrillingly pure Oz.”
