Production images of Thomas Murray and the Upside Down River by Robert Catto, captured at Griffin Theatre on Wednesday 13  January, 2016.

Invoking the expansive, isolating beauty of rural Australia, Reg Cribb’s epic new play is about a man ravaged by drought, family secrets and love.

The Murray family have been farming the land along the Darling River for five generations. For Tom Murray, it’s all he’s ever known. When his childhood friends Lucy and Billy reappear, deep friendships are tested, and secrets, long buried, are finally awakened – Tom must make the long journey down-stream to reconcile past wrongs and to fight for his wife.

Reg Cribb is a highly-awarded playwright and screenwriter. His plays Last Cab to Darwin and The Return / Last Train to Freo have been adapted into feature films and he wrote the screenplay for the award-winning Bran Nue Dae. 

Director Chris Bendall
Set & Costume Designer Dann Barber
Composer & Sound Designer Kingsley Reeve 
Lighting Designer Alexander Berlage
Stage Manager Ruth Horsfall
Co-Producers Pippa Bailey and Chris Bendall
