What’s happening to winter? In hot, bushfire-prone Australia our winters are becoming warmer and shorter. Will climate change eventually erase the season, leaving it to exist only in paintings, fairytales and historical accounts? "The End of Winter" is about loss and resilience. It’s about the places the writer goes in search of the cold weather she loves—places she can reach via public transport and the imagination.


A story of winter written in the heat of summer.

STAGES chronicle the evolution of the production. Hearing from the creative personnel - performer, director, designers, playwright - over a 4-week period,  the podcast explores how they construct this piece for the theatre.


To the uninitiated, it is a fascinating process as disparate parts collaborate under the guidance of director to create the magic of live performance. The deft conjuring of illusion and the seductive pull of storytelling, transport us to other worlds, and enlighten us through evocative text and passionate craft.
