The Bleeding Tree


By Angus Cerini

In a dirt-dry town in rural Australia, a shot shatters the still night. A mother and her daughters have just welcomed home the man of the house with a bullet. The only issue now is disposing of the body. Triggered into thrilling motion by an act of revenge, The Bleeding Tree is an Australian murder ballad blown up for the stage, with three strong women fighting back. Throughout, Cerini is writing is powerfully lyrical, bracingly funny and a highly original take on Australian gothic.

From the pen of Victorian playwright Angus Cerini, The Bleeding Tree premiered at Griffin Theatre Company in 2015. It immediately earned praise as a great and complex production (The Australian) and went on to win three Helpmann Awards for Best Play, Best Direction and Best Female Actor.
