Summer of the Seventeenth Doll Kewpie Dolls

Posted by Admin For The Original Kewpie Co on

Ray Lawlers compelling Australian play was a success in London and was hailed by critics in New York for its vigorous, integrity, and realistic portrayal of two itinerant cane cutters: Barney, a swaggering little scrapper, and Roo, a big roughneck. They have spent the past sixteen summers off with these two ladies in a southern Australian city. Every year Roo has brought a tinsel doll to Olive, his girl, as a gift to symbolise their relationship, but this seventeenth summer is different somehow. Old patterns must be broken, new ways found, as four lovers come to face certain unpleasant truths about themselves. This unusual, compelling love story was made into a film entitled Season of Passion and starred Academy Award winners Ernest Borgnine, Anne Baxter, John Mills and Angela Lansbury.


Here at the Original Kewpie Co we have supplied many Kewpie Dolls to theatres and production houses in Australia who have produced the Summer of the Seventeenth Doll play. Most recently we supplied Kewpie Dolls to Genesian Theatre in Sydney who needed some dolls created urgently for their Summer of the Seventeenth Doll production because their theatre props had been lost or damaged.
