The details will be different, but it will happen to you.

If you’ve read her books and essays, or watched the Netflix doco, you know that Joan Didion is one of the most deeply intelligent and thoughtful writers of the 20th century.


This highly personal account of loss through the lens of hope unpacks a surreal and overwhelming time in Didion’s life as she faces the sudden loss of her husband John, and later her daughter Quintana. Deeply moving, sometimes funny, and ultimately joyful, this is one woman’s story of the journey to find acceptance, and the lessons learnt in letting go.

After a critically acclaimed sellout premiere season in Melbourne, this production is a must-see for all fans of great writing and drama.

Written By Joan Didion
Directed By Laurence Strangio

“We felt like privileged listeners, given access to an extraordinarily insightful confrontation with the way in which grief loosens our grasp on reason”
ArtsHub
“The audience is mesmerised, holding on to every word, gesture, with eyes following
her movements, taking in what’s been so eloquently said”
