THE ALMIGHTY SOMETIMES

$23.99

“I’m older now, I’m stronger. How do you know I haven’t sorted out some natural equilibrium on my own?”

Anna has been medicated for a range of mood and behavioural disorders for as long as she can remember. Now she wants to know what life would be like without pills and prescriptions. More fulfilling? More exciting? More real?

As Anna tries to find out who she really is, her mother, Renee, remains determined to protect her. She can’t bear to watch her daughter go through the anguish all over again, to throw it all away for a personal experiment – but Anna’s treatment is no longer her decision.

Winner of the Judges’ Award in the prestigious Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting (UK), Kendall Feaver’s captivating play is a profound and compelling study of a young woman trying to discover where her illness ends and her identity begins. Directed by the Helpmann Award-winning Lee Lewis, it’s a quick-witted and bracingly honest take on the difficult choices you make in your child’s best interests, and what happens when you no longer have a say.
