The Tree of Man by Patrick White

Neil Pigot, Caroline Lee, Denis Moore and Naomi Rukavina

Performance readings of extracts from The Tree of Man by stars of the Australian stage and screen including Neil Pigot, Caroline Lee, Denis Moore and Naomi Rukavina will be performed each Tuesday throughout August at the Old Treasury Building. Stan and Amy Parker carve out a life in the bush 20km from Sydney in the 1920s. Their simple lives are made epic, intense and profound when seen through the elemental landscape which seeps into their psyches. They are Adam and Eve before the Fall. By the end of the novel, the city of Sydney has reached their farm, buying up their ‘garden of Eden’. Throughout their lives, searing moments of illumination offer them insights into the meaning of life, the possibility of beauty and of art being compensation for Eden lost. Considered somewhat controversial, acerbic and unpredictable, Patrick White was the great poet of Australian literature and he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1973.
