The Rock has made a lot of trouble, for a lot of people since the day of the picnic.

Picnic at Hanging Rock with The Theatre Guild


Whether it is the book by Joan Lindsay or the highly acclaimed movie by Australian director, Peter Weir, the mysterious story behind Picnic at Hanging Rock has intrigued and captivated audiences around the world. The story is the uncanny retelling of an alleged tragic event that has been veiled in mystery concerning a group of schoolgirls from Appleyard College, a private girls' school near Melbourne, who went missing in 1900.

On a blistering hot summer's day, on St Valentine's Day, four schoolgirls and their teacher go on a picnic near Hanging Rock. They were all expected to return in time for dinner, but all but one vanish, never to be seen again. A search party by local police were unable to find them. Their disappearance affected so many lives, so many people, and so many generations ahead.

The mystery of the picnic at Hanging Rock continues today. Two questions lie at the heart of both the legend and its continuing popularity. Is the story true? If it is, what happened to those girls?
