Wild, passionate and ultimately tragic: the love story of Australia's famous literary couple, Charmian Clift and George Johnston, plays out on the idyllic Greek island of Hydra in the 1950s in this reimagining from award-winning playwright Sue Smith.

Weaving in text from Clift and Johnston's own writing, and including an introduction and extra materials, Hydra brings these remarkable artists to life.
