Pic­nic at Hang­ing Rock, Show­case, Sun­day at 8.30pm

GAME of Thrones’ Natalie Dormer (pic­tured) stars in this grip­ping, sur­real reimag­in­ing of Joan Lind­say’s iconic Aus­tralian novel.

The six-part drama plunges into the mys­te­ri­ous dis­ap­pear­ance of three school­girls and their governess dur­ing a pic­nic on Valen­tine’s Day, 1900.

Ex­plor­ing the event’s far-reach­ing im­pact on the stu­dents and staff of Ap­p­le­yard Col­lege and its enig­matic head­mistress, the­o­ries soon abound, para­noia sets in and long-held se­crets sur­face as the rock ex­erts its strange power and the dark stain of the un­solved mys­tery con­tin­ues to spread.

Pic­nic at Hang­ing Rock also stars Sa­mara Weav­ing, Lily Sul­li­van, Yael Stone, Madeleine Mad­den, Anna Mc­Ga­han and Ruby Rees.
