The Malthouse Theatre is staging an adaptation of Picnic at Hanging Rock, the iconic 1967 Australian novel written by Joan Lindsay. In A Gambler's Guide to Dying, Gary McNair wryly conjures up his larger than life grandfather, who won a fortune betting on the 1966 World Cup. And Nicola Gunn's one-woman show about morality, personal responsibility, and ducks.
