Olive has had perfect summers filled with fun, romance and excitement with her best friend and sugar cane cutters Roo and Barney, who come to spend their off season relaxing and spending their earnings.
They have laughed and partied the months away, but this year is different. Nancy has tired of waiting for Barney and has married someone ‘dependable’. Pearl is decidedly unimpressed, as events fail to live up to Olive’s stories of summers past. When Roo and Barney arrive, the air between them is simmering with tension and resentment. As Olive struggles to keep change at bay, can she come to accept that change is inevitable?
An iconic play in Australia, Summer of the Seventeenth Doll is rarely performed in the UK. Core are thrilled to be bringing this beautiful drama to the Rondo.
