Australian Design Centre and Griffin Theatre Company in association with Sydney Festival present the world premiere of Window, Cricket Bat, by Hilary Bell.

Some objects possess mysterious powers. They can take us back in time. They can remind us of someone. They can make us emotional, joyful, wistful and homesick.

Objects can also imply drama. When you hear the words ‘window’ and ‘cricket bat’… what do you think of?

Produced in a unique collaboration with Griffin, accompanying the exhibition, Window, Cricket Bat is a delightful journey back to London in the 1980s, penned with fond humour by playwright Hilary Bell.

A short chamber performance for a solo performer and a curious audience, Window, Cricket Bat comes to life within the exhibition space of Happy objects at the Australian Design Centre.

Become a guest at the glamorous luncheon of one of the world’s most famous playwrights evoked with nothing more than a well-loved souvenir and a cracking story.

Australian Design Centre’s Happy objects is a celebration of ‘stuff’, material items that are often imperfect, and always deeply symbolic of the lives we lead.
