Summertime in the Garden of Eden

SUMMERTIME IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN

BY SISTERS GRIMM

Created by Ash Flanders & Declan Greene

RETURN MELBOURNE SEASON (THEATRE WORKS – SELECTED WORKS)

SYDNEY SEASON (GRIFFIN THEATRE – GRIFFIN INDEPENDENT)

Georgia. 1861. A faded Southern belle returns to the family plantation after ten years away from home. But where has she been? Why did she run? And what secrets are buried in the ol’ greenhouse?

Fantastically melodramatic, at times obscene and definitely ‘something’, Summertime in the Garden of Eden is an epic story of love, betrayal and murder in the spirit of Gone With The Wind and Jezebel.

Following its sellout debut season (in a rusted shed in Thornbury), Sisters Grimm are proud to present a reimagined version of their deeply stupid Deep South slur – first in its hometown of Melbourne, before lifting up its hoop skirts and heading up to Sydney.

Starring infamous Melbourne scene-queens Agent Cleave and Olympia Bukkakis as feuding debutantes, alongside Sisters Grimm stalwarts Peter Paltos, Genevieve Giuffre and Bessie Holland.
