A musical odyssey through Henry Lawson's most beautiful poems. 
Described by Barry Humphries as "Miraculous" composer John Thorn's evocative settings have delighted audiences and critics throughout Australia. “...the creators of Looking for Lawson are so innately talented, interspersing succinct, compassionate narration with a marvellous selection of Lawson's work, newly set to music" … Stage Whispers.    

Both venues will be set as Cabaret. Please note that it is BYO food and drinks at the Zamia Theatre whilst The Centre Beaudesert will open its bar to patrons.
