Anatomy of a Suicide

6 - 29 Oct 2022

★★★★ "Haunting and immersive... finds a way to tenderly, evocatively explore female pain and intergenerational trauma." - Time Out, Sydney

"My mother always said to Live Big. Live as much as I could."

Discover a startlingly beautiful and truly unique theatrical experience about three generations of mothers and daughters.

For each woman, the chaos of what has come before brings with it a painful legacy. Three stories intertwine in such a way that every audience member will have their own unique interaction with the show.

A sensation at The Old Fitz Theatre in 2019 and nominated for four Sydney Theatre Awards, Anatomy of a Suicide returns in 2022 for a powerful, unflinching look at how one family struggles to live alongside the impact of pain passed from one generation to another.

This is theatre doing what it does best: taking on the big taboos—guilt, loss, addiction, regret—and illuminating them beautifully to provide a shared understanding and relief.

★★★★★ "Most productions require one viewing. Alice Birch’s spellbinding and serious new drama is worth three."
The Sunday Times
★★★★ "Unflinching and impressively detailed... reminds how inescapable one’s destiny can be."
