A vibrant, three-act epic follows four generations over five decades from Colombo to Australia and tests the complex strength of family love.

Counting and Cracking is a true family saga that follows four generations from 1956 to 2004—through family secrets, love and upheaval.

The theatre show features 19 performers from six countries and has won seven Helpmann awards. It’s a story of secrets, love, reconciliation and hope. Wisecracking Tamil and Sinhalese intertwines with English, in communal acts of translation.

Making its Melbourne debut as part of RISING this June. Tickets on sale now: bit.ly/4d082CU
