The End of Winter

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 a performance essay 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.

“An elegy for the romance of cold and for the imminent loss of seasons…” Sydney Morning Herald

★ ★ ★ ★ “It’s a bravura performance from Jane Phegan…a theatrical experience of bonewarming depth and of hope.” Reviews by Judith

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ "... often enlightening, often sobering, and occasionally laugh-out-loud funny. Recommended.” Stage Noise
