`Cloudstreet' to open at Kennedy Center

Cloudstreet, the epic Australian play based on Tim Winton's 1991 novel about two families sharing a house in Perth in the 1940s and 1950s, opens a three-day run at Washington's Kennedy Center tomorrow.

A co-production by two of Australia's leading troupes, Company B Belvoir and Black Swan Theatre, Cloudstreet has toured Australia and Europe, and was named Best International Production at the Dublin Festival. Before Washington, it played a weeklong engagement at New York's Brooklyn Academy of Music, the show's only other appearance in the United States.

The five-hour performance includes one intermission and a 45-minute dinner break.

The show takes place in the Kennedy Center's Eisenhower Theater. Show times are 6:30 p.m. tomorrow, 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $45-$60. Call 800-444-1324.
