David Williamson’s hit, Let the Sunshine tours SA this July on its 2012 national tour, visiting 5 regional venues along with Noarlunga’s Hopgood Theatre as part of Country Arts SA’s Season 2012 Program.
The cast boasts well known Aussie names including Peter Phelps (Stingers) and Alexander Fowler (All Saints) in its line up.
Set in the year of Kevin 07 Let the Sunshine is described as part Romeo and Juliet, part Meet the Parents. Williamson sets the stage as documentary maker Toby and his wife Ros flee to Noosa escaping scandal in Sydney, where the couple meet their polar opposites, Natasha and Ron. It’s not long before their children find romance together and the patter of tiny feet brings on a clash of egos.
Williamson presents a plot filled with family conflicts, social, political and economic differences, private frustrations and the redeeming qualities of love set against the backdrop of Noosa. The 2012 tour revives the success of the original 2009 Ensemble Theatre Show and one which has earned rave reviews from critics so far for its lighting, set design, sound and direction.

“… a closely observed social-satirical-topical drama… a finely crafted plot from a master. …an affirmation of
human values that runs through all of Williamson’s works.” – The Australian
“… Williamson’s ability to sketch vivid caricatures from life shouldn’t be underestimated. This is a play
guaranteed to remind you of someone you know. Achieving that kind of recognition is a rare talent. Add in a
gift for witty one-liners, and you’ve got a play that will keep the punters happy.” Cameron Woodhead – The Age
