The Weekend by Charlotte Wood adapted for stage at Belvoir St Theatre
14 August 2023
A stage adaptation of Australian author Charlotte Wood’s 2019 novel, The Weekend, opened in Sydney on Saturday 5 August 2023. I read a few months ago that a production company had bought the film rights, but I didn’t know about the stage adaptation.
Much of the dark humour permeating the novel was voiced through the internal monologue of the characters, something I hope is carried over somehow in the dramatic adaptations.
If you’re in Sydney, the show is on until Sunday 10 September 2023, at the Belvoir St Theatre.
