About the Show

The captivating allure of the azure waters surrounding the picturesque Greek island of Hydra has historically drawn bohemians, artists, writers, and musicians. Among them, expatriate Australian writers George Johnston and Charmian Clift found inspiration during the 1950s and 60s, spending nearly a decade on the island where they produced some of their most notable literary works.

Their passionate and tumultuous love story raises universal questions about risk-taking, the pursuit of dreams, and the depth of commitment. Playwright Sue Smith intricately intertwines excerpts from Clift and Johnston’s writings to vividly portray these remarkable artists, exploring both their personal journey and professional achievements as expatriates.

Recently marking what would have been Charmian Clift’s 100th birthday, a year-long celebration has commenced to honour her literary prowess and contributions to the arts. This tribute by Brighton Theatre Company recognises her enduring legacy and literary talent.
