A shot rings out across the night.

A mother and her daughters take revenge on a life of misery, greeting the man of the house with a crack on the shins and a bullet in the neck. But what do they do with the body?

Angus Cerini’s multi award-winning play The Bleeding Tree is a contemporary gothic tale of revenge that is fierce, poetic, heart-breaking and irreverently funny.

Directed by Corey McMahon (1984, After Dinner), The Bleeding Tree features Elena Carapetis (A View from the Bridge, After Dinner) and Elizabeth Hay (Volpone, The Gods of Strangers).

This is the South Australian premiere of The Bleeding Tree presented by Theatre Republic.

‘It’s thrillingly subversive and deeply affecting’ – Time Out
