All theatre and comedy fans are invited to the highly anticipated and award-winning production, The Season at Monash University's Alexander Theatre from Thursday, 2 until Saturday, 4 August 2018.

The production returns to Melbourne to kick off its Australian tour following a hugely successful staging at the Sydney Festival and Melbourne Festival in 2017. At this year's Green Room Awards, The Season won Best Production, Best Direction, and Best New Writing.

The Season is a warm and laugh-out-loud comedy about an Aboriginal family who come together each year for the traditional Mutton Bird harvest on Tasmania's Dog Island.

Somewhere between mainland Australia and its southern-most mate, Tassie, lies Dog Island. For six weeks every year that's where you'll find the Duncans, a mob as funny as they are unforgettable.

They come back to roost for mutton-bird season and have done for as long as anyone can remember. Amid the threat of snakes and Pop's explosive temper, the family reunites with a country and culture still very much alive.

But their long memories and smart-arse streak mean it's not just the birds sticking their beaks where they're not welcome.

Old secrets are dug from their burrows and fledgling rivalries begin to take flight - it might all fall apart if it wasn't for the fierce love that holds this bunch together.

Nathan Maynard has crafted a deadly funny portrait of a singular corner of our world. Directed by Isaac Drandic and featuring a stellar cast including Luke Carroll, Trevor Jamieson and Lisa Maza, this national tour of the original acclaimed production is raucous and rowdy celebration of tradition and the bonds that unite us.

Tickets to The Season, presented by MLIVE start from $15 and are on sale now. To book or for more information, visit
