Malthouse Theatre, Belvoir, Dramafest,
Commission Theatre International Tour Co-Production
For more than a decade, playwright Lally Katz has been one of Australia’s foremost fabulists, trekking off to the furthest coasts of the imagination and returning with her findings. Now she introduces to the stage one of her most unexpected subjects: herself. She might be alone on the stage but she’s far from lonely, bringing with her a cast of characters — from fortune tellers to mystics to Mississippi Evangelicals — encountered on the quest to cure her curses. Known for delving into fantasy, this writer proves art imitates life.
This production also performed in Cuernavaca City, Mexico (5 September). In 2014 it was also produced at The Butter Factory (Wodonga, 6-15 March) and Adelaide's Bakehouse Theatre (29 October - 8 November).
This touring production is co-presented with Belvoir.
