Dates: Thursday 27th July
Venue: Big Theatre
In the sad, dustiness of a church hall, four twenty-somethings attend their final meeting for a ‘youth living with bipolar’ support group. It’s Christmas and there’s cake. What could go wrong?
Crackers is a new Australian black comedy excavating the intricacies of youth mental illness. You are invited into the meeting room, complete with bad decorations and worse coffee, to see the most private effects of bipolar in a way you may never have seen before. A witty and gritty look behind the veneer, these are the details you won’t read on the back of a pamphlet.
Crackers is presented by emerging arts collective Bite Productions who create socially savvy and politically potent theatre that is inclusive – not exclusive – for all. Written by resident playwright, Georgina Adamson, who has recently been diagnosed, this show aims to start an accessible conversation around youth mental health using charming and self-deprecating black humour. Following a sold out season at Redfern’s Giant Dwarf, Crackers returns for three nights only at Bondi Feast 2017.
Running time: 60 minutes
