What's On


Every day until Sat 17 Dec 2022
Following the ground-breaking international success of the multigenerational Sri-Lankan Australian family epic Counting and Cracking, Helpmann Award-winning creative powerhouses, S. Shakthidharan and Eamon Flack return with The Jungle and the Sea, at Belvoir St Theatre from 12th November to 18th December.

A mother, in a time of war. Members of her family go missing, one after the other – but she never loses hope. The Jungle and The Sea unveils the untold histories of the Sri Lankan civil war in this powerful story about surviving loss, discovering love, and building a path to justice. A rich, sweeping new play that combines two great pillars of literature – the Mahābhāratha and Antigone, to forge a contemporary story of beating a path to reconciliation.

The Jungle and The Sea is a companion piece to Belvoir’s critically acclaimed Counting and Cracking, following the production’s successful tour to Edinburgh and Birmingham in August 2022. It reunites many of the original Counting and Cracking team; this time with a stellar cast of nine actors from around the world.
