    No clouds in Rose’s head

    5 March 2020

    This is the second time that actor Brenna Harding has taken on the role of Rose Pickles in the stage adaptation of Tim Winton’s epic novel Cloudstreet. A co-production by Black Swan State Theatre Company and Malthouse Theatre, directed by Matthew Lutton, the production debuted in Melbourne in 2019, and is currently playing Perth Festival. And Brenna is relishing the chance to revisit her role in the play, she tells Nina Levy.
