‘An elegantly realised production.’ The Age

From the multi award-winning writer of Cloudstreet comes an otherworldly theatrical event that shines a light on the tangled bonds of one Australian family. Following the resounding success of Glimpse and The Leenane Trilogy, The Kin Collective joins forces with fortyfivedownstairs and director Marcel Dorney to present the Melbourne premiere of Tim Winton’s searing drama, Shrine. The deeply personal connection readers have with Australia’s sharpest storyteller is brought to life by a stellar cast that includes Ally Fowler (Wentworth, Neighbours) and Christopher Bunworth (Boy Out of the Country).

‘Bunworth, in particular, is superb, roiling and volcanic….’   Australian Book Review

“…performances here are strong, the play engaging, and the lighting is just gorgeous.” Theatre Press
